I really believe that this kid will continue to improve and become a bigger factor with this team in the years to come.
I didnt say players couldnt have great seasons in their 30's but the people who say that a players prime goes until 32 is just incorrect. The prime of your career is the best years you have, the best chunk of years, not just 1 year here or there. The prime of a players career in my mind is 22-27, because that tends to be the best 6 years of their career. Im not sure who your referring to when you say that people say Giroux is "old". To me, he entered his prime this season and this and the next 4-5 years will be his best. I think next season he will likely hit his peak.
