Girardi signs new deal with Rangers
The New York Rangers made one step toward solidifying their defense for the 2010-11 season by signing Dan Girardi to a new contract and avoiding an arbitration hearing. Details of the contract were not disclosed.

A restricted free agent, the 26-year-old had 6 goals and 18 points last season, and played all 82 games for the third straight season. His 280 consecutive games played streak is the ninth-longest current streak in the League. And he's done it by leading the team and ranking sixth in the League with 180 blocked shots and tying for second on the team with 178 hits last season. His 21:28 average ice time per game was second on the team to fellow defenseman Marc Staal.

Staal, who was second on the Rangers in scoring among defensemen, also is a restricted free agent.
Quote of the Day

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
