That statement is pure B.S and I lol at it big time.
he's not the one comparing giroux to HOF'ers, and i'm pretty sure the rest of the paragraph, which you seem to have ignored, makes your interpretation completely irrelevant.

All he said is that giroux has a very impressive vision, the kind that should make him a great first line center some day. Think spezza at his age, but without all the defensive doubts and Jacques Martin limiting his ice time. Flyers fans here (and many non-flyers fans, including myself) believe that Giroux will turn into an all-star first line center, the kind of player spezza is still trying to be right now.

While, as a sens fan, i believe that package is too much to give up for one player who may or may not make it, I do believe that if Giroux develops the way i expect him to over the next 3 years, it would be worth it. Of course, making a trade dependent on the development of only one player would be very stupid.
