bravo for being delusional and lucky
Or knowing greatness when he saw it. The plays Giroux was making from the moment he became an NHL regular were really special (the assist to Gagne in Game 3 against the Pens, for example). Personally, I'd never seen a Flyer -- aside from Peter Forsberg -- with that supreme level of creativity and hockey IQ. Combine those two attributes with an insatiable competitiveness on the ice and knack for thriving in big moments, and, well, here we are. It was apparent very early on that Giroux had the intangible "it" and would one day be the face of the franchise.
