Not in the NHL and of course he's not worth Giroux alone. But as far as Giroux being a top 5 center, I don't think he is one. Top 10, sure, and you can maybe start making a case he's top 5 when he's at his best and the rest aren't, but even with that I'd still do the trade, because while I think Giroux is better than Kuznetsov at the moment (and I'm not going to speculate on whether that will change), I don't think there's that much of a difference, and Forsberg is someone that I'd also gladly have in the fold.

But anyway, the reason I commented on your post is that when I first saw it I read Briere + (Peter) Forsberg for Kuznetsov, and thought you were joking. Then I did a double take and saw Briere for Kuznetsov and Forsberg and still thought you were joking, so I thought this would be somewhat less lopsided. I mean, alright, you can have Washington throw another guy in if you think what I'd go for is unacceptable to you.
