Agreed. However if they move Girardi, they could slot Stralman and Klein up a pairing or move Klein with McDonagh and leave the Staal-Stralman pairing together to allow for Allen or McIlrath time in the NHL this season. That's an option.

No matter how you look at it, moving Callahan and Girardi will lead to a less competitive NHL team right now, but for the long term health of the organization, it's the right move to make.
