I think trading for him would round out our D. I don't think a guy who has played good D for so many years just forgets in one offseason. With the Rangers struggling (OMG we have more points than them!), maybe they think of cashing in on their free agents. Some of their beat writers have said that could be a possibility if the struggles continue(of the team that is).
Physical D-man who can move the puck out of our zone and play tough minutes. He won't come cheap, but I think he'd be a great addition for us.
I kid. I know that he's an upcoming UFA. Girardi would be a very good pickup for us, i would assume that we send a D to them in any deal for him to free up salary (N. Schultz + 1st rounder maybe). It's tricky because there's a good chance that he doesn't re-sign here so i'd be wary of giving up too much for him.
