He is definitely a warrior and the type of presence you want in the locker room but I honestly can't condone giving him top 4 ice time any more. It wasn't unreasonable to predict that his playing style wouldn't hold up and, frankly, that seems to be the case to me.

If it were just this season, I'd be willing to attribute his playing to a slow start... but honestly, Girardi was not very good last year, either.
No one on our defense is playing well. That includes Girardi but McDonagh has been at best an average player. Del Zotto is not a right side guy. He's creating 0 offense. Moore has looked very bad as well. Staal after the first couple games--not much better than the rest of the D. Or Stralman.
