There are signs that Giordano might be slowing down, even though he still has one year left on his contract with the Toronto team. He has had an amazing career, leading both the Calgary Flames and the Seattle Kraken, even if it was only for a short time. His story of going from an overlooked free agent to being the best defenseman in the league in the 2018-19 season is truly inspiring.

Even though he hasn't won the Stanley Cup as a player, there's speculation that Giordano might have a role in the management of the Toronto team. It would be exciting to see him transition from playing on the ice to working in the team's front office.
