I like Girardi, I hope he stays a Ranger -- but at the right price. Some team will swoop in, ignore the benefits Girardi has had playing with Staal and McDonagh, and pay him like an elite defenseman, which he is not.
I like Girardi as well. I think 4.5-5 is reasonable for what he brings. I hope he stays.

I like Downie, although he is another RW. Ott would be great but he won't leave Buffalo. They just gave him the C.
