I'm not too worried about Giroux in that sense. They're pro athletes and some of the best. Giroux has been outstanding playing this way over 82 games and I'm sure he'd endure the playoffs the same way.
I'm not really worried about Giroux's size either. He's gritty, but he picks his spots well enough that he doesn't get hurt that often. I love Richards, but he plays like a bowling ball out there. He stayed healthy enough last season, but I would suspect injuries are going to take some time from him in the future.

As far as the trade, I'm just going to reiterate what others have said. L.A. is in no position to trade a core piece that was instrumental to their cup win, and the Flyers won't move Giroux for anything short of a massive overpayment.
