Your own Dan Girardi. In addition, he is 6th in the league!

He blocked 180 shots, thats 50 more than the next Ranger.

Everyone has some bad blood for him sitting back when Gaborik was attacked but the man is good on the PK and a big reason while we are top 10 in the league on the PK.

I'm a Girardi fan, but take it with a grain of salt.

Block Shots, Hits, Giveaways, Takeaways - these "realtime" stats are borderline judgement calls, in fact almost all of the stats taken are judgement calls to a certain degree. The Rangers statistician crew is really on top of things compared to most of the statisticians around the league. Thats why Cally is always among the league leaders in hits. The NHL has to do a better job of keeping these types of stats IMO, and they need to have all of the statisticians on the same page - or make sure each organization has the resources to do so.

Perfect example - the Rangers were credited for 2,330 hits last season good for 2nd in the NHL. We all know the Rangers aren't an overly physical team. The statistician just marked a hit for every check he saw. Buffalo had close to 1,000 less hits than the Rangers at 30th in the league. Thats just flat out incorrect.

So while its cool to say G-man is doing his job take it with a gigantic grain of salt, the Rangers players get credit for everything they do - which to a degree is a bad thing for the Rangers organization when negotiating contracts like Staals for instance.

Well, the leader the previous 3 years was Rozsival, but because of his diminished minutes for part of last season Girardi took the league in that category.

Jed Ortmeyer blocked a lot of shots also.

People have bad blood for him because he is overrated and makes a ton of stupid mistakes. Good bottom pair defenseman I guess.

The Rangers' RTSS guys are notoriously biased. Alan Ryder at hockeyanalytics.com has specifically singled out the MSG stats crew for biased reporting.

I dont blame him. But they arent going to change unless the NHL steps up and corrects it. They need to get all these teams on the same page.

No surprise, Drury ranks in amongst tops in forwards, though he does block a ton of shots.

Dan has an above average abilty to block shots and passes with his body

he plays like some sort of satellite goalie out there

however, in my opinion, he is below average at everything else
