This is the clapback from RAIF that we've all been waiting for.

Girardi type players are being phased out. A dman must be able to skate and produce offense. Girardi does neither. He could be a really good bottom pairing only used in PK and defending type scenarios but that should be a 15-16 Min a night player only, MAX!

Its not only Girardi BTW. Orpik, Alzner, Methot, Staal, etc etc etc are all going to be in the same boat soon. (Or are already)

That's the only way they can be useful. A Dman who drives the play with those minutes instead is more useful though. Girardi's d-game isn't enough anymore. Needs to do things that directly lead to goals more often. Just stopping them isn't enough. Especially at the prices some of these guys are paid.
