The only reason Giroux didn't start with the Flyers is simply because there was no room in the top six for him and rather than play him maybe 7 to 9 minutes a night, it was felt that it was best for him to go to the Phantoms and play 18 to 20. Funny thing is that Paddock has him playing almost 30 minutes a night because of how good of a hockey player he is.
Giroux also had a poor training camp, Hence why Nodl made the team this year out of camp. There was a spot for giroux waiting, but he didn't match up. Guessing that was due to the fact he had widsom teeth out just before he started camp, and due to previous experience, i know how painfull that it can be
