Heart and soul of the team (Callahan) is the SEVENth most important Ranger? Interesting.

Yes. "Heart and soul" is nice, but it doesn't make him more important than any of these players who, on the whole, are much, much better hockey players (well, outside of Girardi, but I consider Girardi more important than Callahan).

Besides, this is favorite players I believe, not importance.

Maybe it is because of guys like you who keep voting for Girardi

Ryan Callahan is the heart and soul of the Rangers.

He inherited that title from Jed Ortmeyer.

I don't know if you wanted a serious response or not from a Girardi voter; but here is my opinion (on what was a very close call):

- It speaks to how good (or decent depending upon your perspective) the remaining players are; isn't really saying he is bad. Just that the remaining players have more value to the team.

- Girardi is massively underrated on these boards. Seems to me that defensive defensemen typically end up getting underrated in most discussions - but that is a different conversation.

- If either were suddenly no longer on the team, I think it'd be harder to replace G-man than Cally (and by "replace" I don't mean find an exact replacement in terms of the type of player, but more "fill the hole"). The defense gets markedly worse without Girardi and I don't see many viable options to replace him. Depth certainly becomes an issue without the captain, but if that hole was there, I think it is more easily filled with stopgap measures or otherwise.


- IMO, based on how things seem to be going, it seems like Nash and Step will both be rated just slightly too high.

"most favorite/valuable" actually.

Personally, I don't think any of the forwards left are "much, much" better hockey players and most of his teammates talk glowingly about the guy. I'm not even saying that he's my favorite Ranger, just that it's surprising that he's 7th. Whenever he gets injured, the team pretty much goes down the drain.

Girardi is the heart and soul on the back end. Another underrated guy that no one thinks about until he isn't here. And, Callahan wasn't an option anymore.
