That alone might push him over $3.5m into $4m territory.

If he does what I expect (60 points... 25 goals, 35 assists) he'll easily get $3.5ish over at least 3. Yeah, he might not "deserve" that kind of contract, but the reality is that is what the market would bear for him, if not more.

umm yeah Giroux doesn't deserve the $$$.....in 12 games he's ONLY registered a point in 9 of them thus far and has looked so pedestrian with his goals....

Seems like he's proving something to me and looking good doing it....

BTW..he's carried his strong play from the playoffs ..so it's more than 12 games that he's been lookin' pretty damn good...

Now that Giroux's here, I have to ask whether or not he is actually omnipotent.

I am hoping for something around 4 mil for 3 years (12 total)... but if they can't sign Roo with that then just play with the numbers a bit...

Something to think about: Carter got 15M/3yrs after a 53 point season.

Over the past year, he's earned at least $4m per and can someone please make an argument against him continuing to do so?

This is a terrible proposal. He's not going to be worth 6m a year for the last 3-4 years of that deal even with inflation. I wouldn't give him more than 45 years unless he dropped it to around 5.5m per. Plus giving him 45 years would get him off the books the same year that Pronger's next contract is up so it "G" is still producing we can use that money to resign him for another 5-10 years.

not having scored almost 30 goals in a year. if he does that in his age 22/23 season then he'll ask for carter money and probably get it.

Really? That can't be a real question.

The answer is obviously yes.

The real question is "Is he all-powerful?" If so, why was he unable to stop Leighton from letting in that cheap goal.

Giroux's pacing for 48 goals, 21 of them shorthanded.

This all depends on his performance this season. I don't even want to think about it right at this moment. 4M seems pretty high though IMO.

Nothing, but the league has tightened up considerably over the last couple of offseasons and teams have finally started to get their **** together as far as handling their RFAs. Giroux would have to really tear it up.

Marc Staal got 3.9M hit for 5 years, for example... a guy that was the best D on his team last year and improving.

Does Lemieux still hold the single season record....I believe 13? Poulin had 6 the year he scored 27 goals. Not sure if that's still the most..didn't Richards beat it?

Richards had 7 shorties in 08-09.

Way to early to speculate on Giroux's contract. I would wait until at least the allstar break before starting to throw out numbers. Kind is off to a nice start this year tho.

I mean, if Giroux pulls off a 70+ point season, he won't get anything less than 5M I don't think.

I think we are seriously underrating giroux here. I know crazy. The guy could hit 80 points, let alone 60. There isn't to many point per game players on 3.5 million a year lol. Everyone needs to realise that he is going to be able to command a hefty salary.

Sportsmanship. There's a line where omnipotence just becomes cheating.
