Probably one of the few players on Mot that the Flyers MIGHT be interested in trading Giroux for would be Price, but then there is no way the Habs do that. Giroux is a very gifted player and he is ungodly cheap for what he brings to the teams. His cheap price tag lets us do any other things with our roster and if we have to replace him on one of our top 2 scoring lines it's most likely going to cost us a lot more than he currently does.

While O'Byrne is not a BAD dman for the top 4, he'd actually be our 6th best dman. our top 4 will most likely be Timonen, Pronger, Coburn and Carle (yes, Carle in the top 4 not Parent). O'Byrne might be aboue equal to Parent but personally, I'd take Parent over him. Thus, the best player coming back to the Flyers wouldn't see more than about 10-12 mins a game and would be our last starting dman. Second, Giroux >>>> Plekanec AND Plekanec needs a new contract right now.
