I hope he makes the best choice for him and for the Flyers - I think he knows what type of team is in play....

I just don't want him/Flyers to handcuff the team for the future.

Giroux is a grilled cheese sort of guy so hopefully $7.5 (for many years) is in the ballpark!

If Roo signs for anything less than market price, he needs to fire his agent. I'd guess $7.5 million.

6.75 mill/year for 8 years.

Giroux has seen what happens when this team puts too much money into one player, it can seriously cripple the team. If he wants to be the franchise guy, he will still make more money per year than Richard, Pronger, Timonen, Bryzgalov, and Briere ever made.

G under 7/yr is pretty much impossible. Hell, 7.5 would be a deal.

Why? He's a great player but he's slightly over hyped here.

I agree. Homer will be looking at Stamkos $7.5 mill and try and have it at that.

Anything under 8 is a discount. Anything under 7 is a ridiculous bargain.

I don't care what he gets paid if it's under 10 million.

I'd say 8 years 7.5-8 mill with a full NMC

Hopefully he doesn't remember what happened to the last franchise guys that took discounts. I want Giroux to sign for cheap, but tbh, he'd be dumb to sign for anything less than market value. the NTC wouldn't even kick in for another 2 years.

"Really Claude? You only want $4m a season? That's great, but I'm a little scared we might not reach the cap floor. Well, because of that, I'm going to give Mark $2m extra a season so we don't run into that problem"

If Streit wanted three years, $4.75m he could have just stayed in NY. The reason he left was to get four years and more money per year. If the Flyers hadn't given it to him, another team would have.

Interesting theory. That would be amazing if true. I could see Giroux signing for under the market value (6.75m --> 7.5m) to stay in Philly and to help the team out in the future. The players have to know that when they sign 8.5m contracts it hinders the teams abilities to get more good players.

Most players don't give a **** as long as they get as much money as they can for themselves

I mean really, does a player really need $9m a season? **** no.

Is the difference between getting paid $6m and $9m going to drastically affect their quality of life? Of Course not. Actually maybe it will? Instead of buying 8 Lambos, they'll only be able to buy 6

Professional athletes I tell ya.....

First off athletes have a small window of time that that money is available to them. If you are looking to blame anyone blame yourself. If fans stopped watching and stopped goiing to games then they wouldnt be able to be paid for playing hockey.

If your boss came to you and asked you to take a pay cut, would you?

While Roo will still be getting a raise, signing for a hometown discount is no different than taking a pay cut.

You actually see guys taking less in the NHL & NBA compared to the MLB & NFL since both leagues have guaranteed contracts and a salary cap implemented.

Believe it or not, money is not everything to everyone.

It's easy to look from the outside and see these guys getting paid and believing that all of them are greedy/want to get every dollar possible.



Honestly, if it came down to it, and someone was going to have to pay me over $5m...and they were going to bring in lawyers and make it a huge hassle for me and cause all kinds of problems over every little cent because that's what lawyers do...at some point I'd shake Paul's hand and say "I'm glad to be a part of this team. Let's make this deal reasonable so I can go home and go back to bed."

Some people, myself included, are just like that. If I'm making that much money, I wouldn't give a ****. Then again, I also wouldn't be ******** enough to spend it on mansions and cars and TVs.

Actually it is our fault they get paid so excessively. The money has to go somewhere.

People at the very top of a field valued by society tend to make a lot.
