Why do people assume that a player will take a hometown discount? Every player says he loves the city, that doesn't mean a thing. Maybe Giroux wants to test free agency like Suter and Parise when he's eligible, who knows? He will have every team trying to sign him and will have his choice, should he go to free agency in a few years. There is no reason for him to give a discount.
