A couple responses to the "who fills Girardi's minutes" comment...

1. Girardi does nothing on the PP, so those mintues can be handed off to Stralman, Allen, ect without substantial loss.

2. On the PK, the handedness of a defenseman is less important. So NYR could run 2 pairings, those being McD, Stralman and Staal, Del Zotto or Staal-Moore

3. For ES, you'd have to move someone over. That is the big problem, because to me the main reason for Del Zotto's recent struggles have been the fact that he was the guy forced over onto the right hand side. You could try McDonagh over there, or really anyone, just not Del Zotto.

I like Girardi a lot. He's been subpar like most guys this year. Trading him hurts us short terms and helps us long term.
