Really I'm just worried about having so much money on one guy that is underachieving both on offense and defense before that contract even kicks in. I really like G and want him to be dominant again but haven't seen that for a few years.
Really? That's obvious to you? Based on 20-ish games while playing on a line with two players who are playing like absolute garbage? The same 20-ish games where nobody except Mason was doing anything? Last season he might have hit 90 points in a full season. He started off really slow and then in the last 20-30 games he was over a ppg and didn't look like he was slowing down.

I'd bet anything if Giroux had a couple decent linemates who could actually shoot he'd easily be over a ppg player again.

But no, lets get rid of him after a slow stretch, that sounds smart.
