View Full Version : Dan Girardi for th All-Star Game

Dan Girardi has simply been the most important Ranger(besides Hank) this season. He has stepped in to the #1 D spot seamlessly and is a big reason for our spot in the standings. As of 11/10/11, Girardi is fifth on the team in scoring (2-5-7), tops in ice time (pushing 30 minutes a game), gets the most difficult defensive assignments, is second on the team in hits (30), leads the team in blocked shots (37), and is fifth on the team in +/- (+5). Simply put, Dan Girardi is the most important Ranger on this team who does not play goalie. What I find funny is that Staal is on the ballot even though he hasnt played one game this year.

I recommend checking out this site:

Torts calls NHL "***-backward for Girardi snub on All-Star ballot. "If you don't have a pedigree in this league, they don't look at you."

Sad but true.

Girardi has been the ****ing man this season. Coming up huge when we desperately need him. I agree that he deserves to at least be on the ballot and probably on the team too.

I love the way he plays and I can't wait till Staal gets back.

I thought he was near all-star level last season...

But this year, he has totally stepped up his game. With Staal out, the league is definitely taking notice of his game. He should definitely be there this year.

And whenever Staal comes back, if he is as good as he was, we are going to have quite the group of defensemen. McDonaugh has been very good, as has Sauer, and MDZ has shown some nice improvement as well.

This is a no brainer for me. Though I'm sure there's plenty of worthy D men in the league he's just been our rock and has played so many minutes he should be on the ballot.

Girardi deserves this all star spot. Dont worry about everyone else on the team, I am sure Lundqvist and Gaborik will get their due but lets focus on the MOST underrated player in the game.

2009-20010- Top 10 in blocked shots, top 25 in hits.
2010-2011- He improved in every aspect of the game, including being #1 in blocked shots, top 10 in hits, #1 points for the Rangers blue line even with Staal.
2011-2012- Has been our iron horse. His points are going up but with no sign of his defense going down. The only reason hes not a top blocked shots or hits guy this year is becuase the Rangers have strengthened their offense and they have more time on attack. But he still is within the ranks of blcks and hits. Not to mention stepping up all year with Staal down and being a mentor for our youth.

Girardi Deserves this... go onto the all star vote and add him in! You can do it 30 times. Do it as many times as you can! Add whoever else you want, but add in Girardi! I just did it it 30 times in less than 7 minutes. You have a week to do so! DO IT and then ask all your ranger fans to do the same!!!!!!!!!!!

Lets get this guy in the all star game!
