Nice Thread. I love how all the Foppa lovers here have especially large mancrush on Giroux.

I know I do.

On a side note, Giroux was my guy before any of you SO SUCK IT!

When it's all said and done he could very well be the best player of anyone currently in the organization.

Once Foppa traded himself for the good of the Flyers, I was devoid of my favorite guy for sometime. I thought Carter was gonna be my guy. Thankfully I didnt rush on a jersey.

Dear Homer

GIROUX

Seriously, I want to see a Cannon-like contract with Giroux. I am convinced at this point that he is not a bust, and he has the potential to be a serious point-producer in this league...might as well lock him up for his career.

The guy has been a winner on every stage he played at. I've been a huge fan from day one and have made lots of noise about Giroux. He's got greatness written all over him. The one thing that I love about his game is that he wants to be the best, does whatever he can to win, and is never content with things. The guy is a more offensive version of Richards. I'll say this right now - Giroux will make Carter expendable.....wow, even I can't believe I said that.....

If Giroux would sign a 10 year contract for say, 3.5m a season, I'd agree to have my left testicle surgically removed.

lol at the game on sunday, every time he had the puck, the guy next to me would start singing that clown song. Don't know how to write it in words, but it was funny.

He is not dumb

If eh is going in the 10 year range- which I seriously doubt w/o playing a full year- he would want like 5 mil/per

I see us locking him up next year around the All Star game. 11 years 55 million

And I am getting Giroux on my jersey this week. I already have his autograph

This is what the Flyers need to do:

Trade Lupul to LA for a 2nd.

Give Giroux an extension which will basically be Lupul's contract (it will kick in once the entry-level deal is over).

I knew Giroux would be something the day we drafted him. The first avatar I had on this board was Giroux. When we had the big Downie vs Giroux thread, I was one of the ones defending Giroux till the end. The kid didnt even get drafted into the OHL, people thought he was too small to play, and had to TRYOUT for the QMJHL. He has fought through everything to get here.
