I think we've established he had a bad season. A few things, though:
- The Rangers, as a team, sucked. Really, really sucked. (Was it Tortorella? Was it some kind of locker room karma job? I dunno.)
- Players have off-years.
(- ....And sometimes those off-years make them more, shall we say, tradable.)
- I believe he would be great as a Wing. We need a Dan Girardi, IMHO.
The Rangers, as a team, made it to the 2nd round. They were one of only eight teams to do so. If that's a team that really, really sucks, then your standards are very, very high.
As for Girardi's trade value, whatever it may be: unless Glen Sather is willing to give Girardi up in exchange for spare parts, the Wings haven't the cap space or the roster space to obtain him.
