Over the next 2 years, the Flyers basically need to determine who's going to be a better player and who they're going to need more: Giroux or JVR. JVR's size already gives him an advantage, but Giroux is looking pretty sick himself.

I don't see us keeping both of them past their entry levels though. Keep in mind that a hefty chunk of Gagne's salary is going to go towards paying Carter and that Sbisa will also need to be resigned at that time.

I agree with you. Giroux's value is far and away higher then JVR's because Giroux is playing very well and JVR just signed his pro contract.
If there is any inclination you worry about it in 10/11. to trade him now for those reasons mentioned at the start of this thread is well, assinine.
