I like Claude Giroux but am not sure any team would take his $8.25 million contract starting next year given his performance last year and so far this.

One would have thought that Laviolette, Holmgren and Snider would have thought that, given the Richards fiasco, that maybe they wait a few years for Giroux to mature before giving him the captaincy. I mean Timmonen was available for that role obviously through 20013-14; 2014 would have been fine for Giroux to become C. Don't know for sure but being captain of a team that's doing well is a different role than with a team that's doing poorly with no sign of improvement. It frustrated the hell out of Richards having to answer the same questions over and over with ultimately the same answers. Would be nice if for once, the captain said "look, we have a ****** team here and hopefully management will do something to improve our personnel" but that ain't gonna happen. So you're left with making excuses for management's poor decisions, you play poorly and the cycle continues.
