Some people don't want to take a step back but the team is not winning anything significant right now as currently built. I like Girardi but he isn't worth $6M because he's the only legit D in the free agent market and the cap is going up by $7M. He's not becoming a better player as he gets older. Clarkson and Weiss were the two free agent prizes last summer. Which player has been worse? Its always about the present but the present is more of the same. The players on the team know its a business. The Rangers had to sign Lundqvist. They don't have to sign Callahan and Girardi. Some Rangers fans really love Callahan. Maybe they have his sweater and feel an attachment to him. Maybe they're younger and these guys(including Girardi) are the first players they identify with the Rangers. There will be other players.
