<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>phillyjabroni</b></div><div>Dan Giradri is more than 2 standard deviations away in Shots Suppressed from 2015-2017. He is in a section of less than 2.1% of the league, and not in the good way.

When anyone compares NHL players, it is understood that they are comparing them relative to other NHL players. To give an example of what you are doing, Zach Rinaldo is not skilled with handling the puck. Compared to the 4th line of a USHL player, Rinaldo is "good" in terms of handling the puck. Zach Rinaldo is not skilled with handling the puck. Compared to Patrick Kane, Rinaldo is trash, in terms of handling the puck. The constant? <strong>Zach Rinaldo is not skilled with handling the puck</strong>.

Getting to the point of Suppressing Shots, according to data from ownthepuck, his Shot Suppressed / 60 minutes is &gt;1. This means that during the game, he will not prevent shots from being taken. If you can refute this point with evidence that would offset this poor play, please do so. Otherwise, don't proclaim that Dan Girardi is a good NHL player.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>palhal</b></div><div>I think I know the reason for the why RAIF defends Girardi so much. When RAIF changes his name to RangersandLightningFan we have have proof that RAIF is actually Dan Girardi.

But seriously we often criticize players for "not playing up their contracts." But can you really blame the player when the owner/GM offers a player way too much money or term. For instance why blame Clarkson for accepting 5.25 X 7 from the Leafs, or Phaneuf's. 7 X 7 from the Leafs, or Kessel's 8 X 8 from the Leafs. Is there a theme here?
I don't that much of Vlasic of the Sharks, but why did the Sharks offered him 7m X 8 years that pays Vlasic till he's 40 years of age. The madness seems to continue.

RAIF. I play RHD. Dan Girardi and me are fair comparisons. So anytime he wants to join me and my friends on Tuesday/Thursday afternoons at the local rink....let's see how he compares to THIS 63 year old.:)</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>DoctorBreakfast</b></div><div>For the billionth time, <strong>WHEN COMPARED TO OTHER NHL PLAYERS DAN GIRARDI IS NOT GOOD. WE ARE NOT COMPARING HIM TO YOU, ME, OR ANY OTHER PERSON ON THIS SITE. YOU HAVE TO USE PEER-TO-PEER COMPARISONS, NOT NHL PLAYER-TO-INTERNET TROLL COMPARISONS.</strong></div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>krakowitz</b></div><div>Nobody is saying he isn't a good player compared to me and you. But when you compare him to every other defenseman in the NHL, he's one of the worst. There's no other way to put it.</div></div>

AND EVERYONE ELSE... STEVIE Y AND TBL DONT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH HEAVY, FORT GUARDING, MINUTE MUNCHING, EXPERIENCED D!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Slow, yet Smart enough to know gap control and positioning! Certainly could have helped YOUR TEAMS, NYR also!!! End of story............
