Holmgren doesn't think he's ready... i'm pretty convinced of that after his "weak" comment in evaluating Giroux. So, I would be pretty shocked if they made decisions around the belief that Giroux is going to stick with the team in the fall.
I also would really like to see a veteran playing alongside Carter and Upshall, just to help them with their consistency some. Lines obviously shift around some, but having the ability to do that wouldn't be the worst thing in the world. Maybe you stick Knuble on that line and let Giroux play with Gagne and impending UFA center.
We shall see... what this team looks like around July 15th should be interesting.
