8 Years (AAV = 5.5m per)
1y - 8m
2y - 8m
3y - 6m
4y - 6m
5y - 4m
6y - 4m
7y - 4m
8y - 4m
That's a deal we would regret after 4 years.

He's already starting to show shigns of fading, he's not going to reverse ship and be the Girardi he was of 2 years ago.

We have to stop hitching our wagon's to the wrong TYPES of players.

we are completely screwed on the Nash contract regardless of if we gave it to him or not. We were willing to acquire it and now that you see the Mona Lisa up close you see how much of a mess it actually is.

Girardi is NOT a defenceman that should be at the top of the food chart financially for thsi Rangers team and paying him 28 million over the first 4 years of the deal is lunacy

He's a solid defensive defenceman with marginal offensive capabilities.

Cap could be 100 Million next season and Girardi is STILL not worth 7 per for any stretch of a contract regardless of the back end years diving.
