Its absolutely meaningless to not tear the team apart completely and dump everyone from McD to Kreider unless we replace Girardi with a right D that can log a lot of minutes before next season, granted that you are prepared to give up this season.

If Girardi is dealt, we will be a real mess unless we replace him. We are definitely worse without him than with him.
For right now. But in year 5 of his 6-7 year contract what then? Probably the opposite.

They will be getting young players back. Make sure one is a RD prospect. McIlrath and Allen look like they will be close to ready for some NHL time next year. There are always other ways to acquire a d-man. Trade? Use the same assets they acquire to bring in a younger d-man who is close to breaking out but needs a shot?

There is more than one way to get the job done.
