Look, I don't hate Giroux and I'm not trying to get him run out of town, but I'm just not going to put one player on a pedestal at the cost of the entire organization.

If Giroux is not a point per game player for the majority of his upcoming contract, it will be absolutely crippling to this franchise. I haven't seen the explosiveness from Giroux that made him that dangerous player that he was in a long time. This is not some minor slump that will go away tomorrow, the guy hasn't been the same player since the series with the Penguins.

I sincerely hope he turns it around and becomes that player again and chances are that he might. I just wouldn't bet ~12% of my team's cap space on it for the next 8 years, if I were GM.
