Yah the Blues are going to be tough as it is. But add Giroux, even subtracting a good D, they're going to be lethal. I don't like Giroux but give him a fresh start and put more talent around him... he's going to produce. The problem with Philly is they took the main goal scoring talent away from him (Carter), and surrounded him with gritty C / wingers who can chip in some goals but no one who is a pure goal scorer. Even Voracek is more a playmaker than a scorer.

Put Stewart or Tarasenko on his wing (the latter especially) and it will be bad news for the Blackhawks and others in that division. As we'll find out in a couple days, we'll have a hard enough time with STL as they are now. Add Giroux and we'd have a real problem. Of course we have to Disco our way to the Final first and Giroux has to be moved first but you take my point hopefully. Would rather just see him fester in Philly / absorb the ire of the fans / get a worse attitude than he already has.
