Edit - found it this is a quote from Holmgrem on Giroux about last season.

"He was ready to play this year, we just didn't have a place for him," Holmgren said.Not a lot of teams in hockey -- the ones we are most familiar with -- can make a similar claim.

I too fully expect Giroux to make this team as a regular top-9 contributor. I was just putting forth an alternate scenario in the event that he, for whatever reason, doesn't make the team out of camp.

Also, I'm just a fan of Matsumoto's game in general and am looking forward to his continued improvement. I expect him to be on the Flyers roster by 2009-2010 (at the latest), if not sooner. I anticipate he'll be a valuable, versatile bottom-6 forward, at the very least.
