I always thought Ray Giroux came along too song for his own good. Smaller defensemen were not in demand anywhere in the league, especially not here in Philly. I thought Giroux played fairly well in his NHL stints and has been an excellent RSL/KHL defenseman for the last six seasons without ever getting a sniff at the NHL again. At 34 now, there's no NHL market for him anymore.
Like Mike Crowley(think that was his first name). A small guy who could skate and had offensive skills.
