However with Giroux and the strides he has made to become a premiere center in this league and all the young talent surrounding him I am much more optimistic about this team than i was when they traded Richy and Carts. The team has excellent players in it still and extremely deep blueline with Prongo back at full health. Bryz is gonna be a stud and i feel bad for people who say the guy isnt a premiere goalie in the league because for him to become a Flyer we had to let some of our better players go. (I know stop beating the dead horse).

The real reason I am optimistic heading into this season is mainly because of Claude Giroux. He will be given every opportunity to make this team his in the next few years and I hope he takes advantage of it. Matt read also has shown the ability to be one hell of a pickup. He has great speed and works his ass off when hes on the ice. Although he isnt even the flyer i would pick to win the Calder i wouldnt be surprised whatsoever if he comes out and has a great year.
