Dan Girardi: future career Ranger?

Once again, Mr. Dependable. Photo: McIsaac/Getty Anyone watching the Rangers to begin the year wouldn’t have foreseen this (individual) turnaround. Anyone paying close attention to the Rangers’ veteran, popular no. 5 for most of last year wouldn’t have predicted this scenario back then either.
