    absolute fuckin warrior. what a career.

    I forget which episode of SPittin Chiclets it was, but Whitney was telling a story about how Girardi almost quit hockey when he was in the ECHL but his dad convinced him to just finish out the season and think about it then. He wound up getting up to the AHL by the end of that year and eventually made his way to NY, and signed himself a pretty ticket along the way.

    I consider G a Rangers legend. maybe not 'retire his number' status but a legend nonetheless

    i might be getting the facts wrong but they did tell a story about him being in the coast and thinking he was going to just call it a career and get a real job

    It was because he wound up in the ECHL and not the A, IIRC.

    Goaltenders dream D man. Just out worked everybody to get to where he got to.

    Went out playing 18 minutes/night for the best team in the league.

    Legend, really.

    Great career. I don’t know why but I wish he played another 2 years or so. I’ll miss seeing him out there.

    They could put a #5 in front of the net so pucks can bounce in the net off of it, or deflect directly to the other team.

    It’s not often if you asked a 100 people to use one word to describe a player all 100 would say warrior. He was. Enjoy the fishing Dan.
