    Has there been any discussion on here about the possibility of the Leafs trading for Dan Girardi yet?

    I’m not saying there are any rumours out there, but he is a pending free agent and I think he’d be a solid stay-at-home righty to play with Rielly on the third pairing.

    Got a team struggling at home tonight, they would be smart to come out hard and fast and get the jump on the Rangers.

    .JVR.  I’d say it’s more likely Marc Staal is available. Only 3 points in 30 games, -7, and getting under 20 minutes a game. Girardi is getting 24 minutes a night now, so they probably see him as being pretty important to get resigned.
