The next closest scorer to Giroux on the team was 26 points away. I think the front office sees the 1st line wing as a real hole. Scott Hartnell is a perfect PWF for his 60-65 pts per year, now they want that sniper to compliment Giroux's passing, which is why Parise's name has been popping up. Signing Parise will cost us a similar fortune to Nash, and give us similar output.
I dont think it's necessary to have multiple 70+ point scorers on a team.
I guess it would be nice to have insurance if Giroux ever went down, but as long as we have a deep and balanced attack, I certainly dont see it as a problem.
Replacing Pronger and Timonen are much more pressing issues, obviously.
