Trevor van Riemsdyk - JVR's little bro - was invited to Sens development camp.
played pretty well for a freshman defenseman in Major college hockey this past season. Was one of a few bright spots on a otherwise down year.
I was hoping the Flyers would take a shot at him in a year or 2 but thats unlikely to happen now.
People saying that Stamkos is better than Giroux AINEC is really starting to bug me. The only thing Stamkos beat Giroux on last year was goals. Giroux had him for EVERYTHING else.
I agree that Stamkos is better. In fact, I don't even see how you can have an argument for Giroux. Stamkos absolutely destroyed him in goals and even beat him in points. Stamkos is two years younger yet he has three 45+ goal seasons, two 50+ goal seasons, a 60 goal season, and three of his four season are above PPG and above 90 points. Giroux, despite being two years older, only has one season of elite play where he even reached PPG and has never even scored 30 goals.
How is it even a question really?

Well you got to taken into consideration one plays with st. Louis and ther other... Jagr i guess? I would still prob have stankos as #2 behind crosby but i dont think giroux is THAT far behind.
I don't think Giroux is currently far behind either, however Stamkos has accomplished a lot more in terms of stats and NHL awards. He's also younger and despite that has managed to put up three very elite seasons compared to Giroux's one. They're also two polar opposite types of players so they would be hard to compare even if their stat records were similar.
