i guess the jump from the Q to the NHL was a little too steep for giroux right now. i wouldnt be surprised if he were with the big club come christmas/january though depending on injuries and whatnot.
Either way when all is said and done no one should be shocked that the Phantoms beat the Flyers. The Phantoms were being backstopped by an NHL goalie who may be recovering from an injury right now, but has an Olympic medal. We also have an AHL team with a lot of young talent on it, and many of whom are playing pretty well right now pushing for spots on the big club. Minor league teams will always play harder when facing pro teams trying to beat the big boys. Plus everyone knows that any team can beat another on any given day. At the end of the day it doesn't matter.
