well quite a few had giroux pegged from the beginning (one of the reasons mgmt traded richards/carter)

to be fair though, I could definitely see wayne flirting with 40g sometime in the next 2-3 years, maybe even sooner.

on the other hand, I could see him getting 25g and be happy with that. It will really depend on the role he gets put in. But if I had to guess, I'd say he'll have a similar career to hartnell. Maybe a few more goals.
