Girgensons has electric skills – skating, hands, ability to play all three zones. All he needs now is a willingness to use them a little more selfiishly. How often do you read that about an athlete?

Everything we’ve heard about Girgensons is positive…very, very positive. Skills, ability to make teammates better, character abound. Our opportunities to see him disappointed, frankly. So, for CHP, he drops slightly, just slightly.
