Flyers sign Claude Giroux, 3-yr $11.25M extension [Post #46]

Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reported it. No details at the moment but just mentioned it in his write up. http://www.ottawasun.com/sports/hock.../16007376.html

There was some chatter a few days ago. It was mentioned amid the discussion about Carter.

Here is a Sporting News account:

Quote:
The Flyers also have to reach accord with winger Claude Giroux, 22, before he becomes a restricted free agent next July 1. Holmgren has told reporters there will be cap space for deals with both forwards.

In Tuesday's 6-3 victory over the Buffalo Sabres, Carter was the right winger on a line with Giroux and Darroll Powe. He would prefer to play center, CSNPhilly reports.

Holmgren told the site there is no definitive time frame here to re-sign Carter.

"Sooner or later it's going to get done," Holmgren said. "It's not like it's a hostile negotiations where it's this or the offer is off the table. It's not like that."
...and a Philly.com article from Sunday:

So well, in fact, that general manager Paul Holmgren has started informal contract talks with Giroux's agent. Giroux can become a restricted free agent after the season, but he is not going anywhere.

If it's anywhere in the ballpark of 3 mil for 3 years, I'll be ecstatic.

I kind of expect some long deal, to be honest... just sorta feel Holmgren is going to go that direction.

I know I'll breathe easier when he gets locked up. Letting him get to RFA status would be a major headache!

Its most likely going to be the 3 years, 3.5 mil route. Basically, the contract right before he hits the big long term one.

Ill be shocked(but happy) if he gets 5+ years. Im expecting 3 here. I dont expect the cap hit to be terrible. However, he's worth whatever it is.

woudl you be happy with 6 years 4.2 per year?

or 3 years 3.5M perr?

How much money Briere makes in his last year? Actual $ not cap hit.

In 2012-13 both Hartnell and Timonen will be in their last year. We may keep both for less.

No... that would make him a UFA at the end. You want 3 or less, and then lock him up to a longer deal -- like what they'll do with Carter (theoretically).

I do not think it will be a big deal. When did Flyers let good UFA just walk. We always signed our own. With few exceptions like Eric LIndros but there was a big issues there.

Yes, but you don't want him negotiating with other teams and/or using that as leverage. At 3 years he's RFA/arbitration eligible. You have a great deal of control... and a better chance of getting a fair contract that isn't too bloated out of the deal. No reason to give up that RFA year at this stage...

Yea but it's not about what we intend to do. It's just smart managing to make sure you control your assets. Nothing more than 3 years unless it's long term at a good cap hit.

Yeah, if they go past 3 years, it should be long term... like, 6-7 years.

However, they should stick to shorter and a lower cap hit, because we need the cap space in the short term.

I do not think he would be if Homer is smart enough (I know I know) to stay on top of it. We could just extend him like SJ did with whats his name? Marleau. Not letting Marleau see UFAcy.

I'm not really sure where anyone is getting this 3 mill ballpark idea, considering Carter was awarded 5 mill after coming off a 53 point season, and Richards was given $5.75 mill after a 32 point season and, as I recall, about a 1/3 of a season at about a PPG clip. Giroux is coming off a 47 point season, and PPG so far in this one. Sure, NHL contract numbers have cooled off a little bit over the last couple years, but all things considered, I don't see too much reason to expect his cap hit to not fall in the Carter/Richards ballpark, regardless of the years. I liked both the Richards and Carter contracts, but felt both were a little high on the cap hit. I'm guessing I'll probably end up feeling the same about Giroux's. But whatever...I'm actually even more concerned about keeping him than I was Carter or even Richards...definitely want to see him locked up, whether now or at the end of the season.
