That's like saying Crosby is the best player of this millennium

He's a top 10 player in the game.. no need to use stats phrased like that to prove anything..
Well, that's how we do it in this decade.

Nah, we have another 987 years for a player better than Crosby to surface.. just like we have another 7 years for more players to amass more assists than Giroux.

Can't really refer to "best of" decades/millenniums when they aren't even half way over

Holmgren and Snider have put themselves, and their fans out there with the way they have done things the last couple of seasons...you should be expecting it...as for 8 yrs at 8.3M for Giroux, who is very talented, it just seems high, and tells everyone the Flyers don't learn, but also have a ton of money!!

I love Giroux, but Getzlaf is a beast. There is no clear better player in that comparison.

He has been better than Getzlaf all of one year. About equal to him two years (this one and the one before last one) and inferior before. Considering that Giroux is actually an RFA unlike Getzlaf would have been, I indeed am surprised that it takes $8M+.

Lock him up. And yes Giroux is worth more than Getzlaf.

When hes nice and washed up the Canadiens will over pay him because they missed out on him the first time. Then they will give him his second buyout.

lol this. Habs passed up a french speaking superstar in the '06 draft and will overpay him when he's an old vet.

why? cause the Flyers bought out 2 players? so what? so have the Leafs and Hawks. half the teams in the league have bought out a player. yet it's only Flyers fans that have to constantly hear the lame jokes all the time.

Past three years. The 10s. Since Giroux got significant playing time.
