You really can't blame Tortorella for that. That was just a horrendous display by Girardi, if there was ever a time that you clearly shouldn't be paying attention to the coach talking about discipline is when your team's star player is getting pummeled. Personally, I don't think that one episode defines the guy as a player, but that pathetic spectacle cannot be blamed on anyone other than Girardi himself.
Now that that's out of the way, I think Girardi is a good blueliner for the Rangers, getting him signed to a multi-year deal is a good move. I actually don't think he's even really that overpaid based on the market for defensemen.
