Dan Girardi

Led the team tonight with 23:56.

With Roszival still trying to find his game and Tyutin playing awesome with him, it looks he is starting to get the majority of the minutes. He's here to stay. Very very quietly game in and game out this kid has performed incredibly well.

I just wanted to point out one of the biggest reasons why the Rangers have become one of the best defensive teams since the last half of last season.

Girardi is the man.
Girardi & Tyutin are going to be the #1/2 pair in NY for years. I only say 1 or 2 because I can see a Staal & Sauer or Staal & Sanguinetti pair being #1.

Dan Girardi has to be the biggest diamond in the ruff ever. He is SOLID

It's amazing how bright our d-man prospects and depth are. Now let's hope we can keep at least 4 of the 5.

I think the Sabres had something like 13 home grown prospects on their bench last night in Carolina. I think next year, we might not be far off from that.

He continues to impress me night in and night out. He's ALWAYS in the right place, always making the smart play, always has his head up and knows when to push up. Him and Tyutin are growing into such an awesome pair. I can't wait for Staal-Sauer (hopefully next year)

I will be the first one to admit I thought nothing of it when we initially brought him in for a try-out and then signed him and sent him to Hartford, but my oh my is this kid solid.

I know the sexy call is to credit Avery for the turnaround last year, but I still stand by my belief that it was, in fact, Girardi's play after his call-up. He stabilzed the defense and allowed the team to steady itself.

Prior to him, the team looked lost defensively. I feel that if they didn't take care of that via Girardi, adding Avery would not have made the impact that it did.

Both Girardi and Tyutin have been excellent.

By including these two, you are detracting from my original point.

I honestly believe the single most important addition last year was Girardi. More so than Avery.

His play allowed the team to stabilize and have the possibility of turning things around.

It is amazing how he is under the radar...doesn't get much pub but the 5/51 pair is going to get noticed soon.

On a side note....a 21/18 pair of Sangs and Staal is going to be fun to watch. That is some top 4...In two years.

Same here...I saw him one time in pre-season and didn't see an NHL player at all. I'm glad I was wrong on him.

As recently as last season, I had my doubts about whether Tyutin could be a top pair defenseman (to say NOTHING of Girardi...). Obviously, he's playing like it right now. And Daniel Girardi has been simply stunning, coming from nowhere to become a legitimate NHL defenseman. I'm so thrilled with the way these two guys have turned out for us.

Girardi seemed to be having a real hard time handling the puck last night. I wonder how bad the garden ice was, he is usually (almost) mistake free and I and was surprised at how many gaffes I noticed.

He did have a few cough ups, but nothing that costed him becaused he recovered quickly and smartly. Thats why hes such a good defenseman.

The ice sucks. The last 4 games the Rangers have played in the ice has been horrible.

I really think the leauge has to step up and do something. Anything. It has to be better.

Better ice = Better product on the ice.

The Garden was voted as having the worst ice in a poll conducted a year or so back, in THN I think. It certainly does suck.

Like many others when they first signed him I said whose Girardi. When he started passing guys on the depth chart in Hartford and made the allstar team his rookie year with the Pack I though good for him and the Rangers -- we've got a solid AHL'er who someday may play for the Rangers. When he first came up to the big club I thought the guy might stick as a #6 d-man. Based on his play the latter part of last season and the beginning of this season we might be looking at a guy who is a legit top pairing d-man in this league. Amazing what he has been able to do. Thing is Daniel doesn't excell in anyone area. However, he's just solid in all aspects of the game. Kinda reminds me of guys like Brad McCrimmon, Doug Lidster and Bruce Driver. Guys who weren't excellent in one area but where solid all the time. Guys who if forced, could play on the top pairing and not look outta place. Guys who forged 10-15 year careers but where looked at as "great d-men" but loved by gm's throughout the league. Marc Staal might evolve into a better d-man but to his team Girardi will probably be just as valuable!

Seems clear that Tyutin-Girardi are now the top pair.
