Hey I was pretty close a few months ago. Can't believe people are upset with G for this.

This is the first time ever that Homer has not been able to get a lower caphit on a resigning.

Giroux got paid in full . Got paid like a UFA

Flyers obviously like to over pay, but Giroux deserves the biggest contract on this team, now and within the future. This is his team... On that note, most people will complain if their ice cream is cold.

I've been nothing but happy with the stuff Homer has done this off season thus far.

oh well

I really need to stop reading the TSN comments

This was posted by some moron named "Pens/Steelers Rule"

He's making more $$ then Letang but Letang scores the same amount of points for the proclaimed best player in the world. Here is a list of players better then Giroux. Sid, Geno, Toewes, Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Tavares, Kane, Kopitar, Perry, Getzlaf, B.Ryan, I myswell keep going, Chara, Subban, Letang, Karalsson, E.Stall, Paraise, Bergeron, Nash, Sedins, Neal, Benn, Sharp Stamkos, St.Louis, Ovie, Backstrom, E.Kane, Kessel,, enjoy the insane contract Philly:_

He (she ?) was saying you can't compare the contracts. If Crosby signed with the Pens under the new CBA his AAV would be above 10 mill.

I agree with some of those on the list.

Especially Eric Staal. he had 43 EV points this year. Is known for his 2 way play and is a stud. Carolina had a -32 goal differential and Staal was a plus 5

Yes, I would say so. Pretty much every single Flyers thread this offseason on the MB has been a troll fest. I wish they would just sticky the Flyers news and lock the comments.

Well I just did,Does not change the fact he is over payed. If he wants that kind of money he better get over 100 points per season or he is a failure. Just like Bryz he could not live up to his contract and it was a failure, if we were paying 3 million not so bad.

I think the cap is gonna increase faster than a lot of people think, and the people handing out these contracts no more specifics.

He's not overpaid, live in the new CBA man. If G would have been signed under the old CBA, he would get an AAV of 7 or less.

Exactly. Give him all the soft minutes and let him rack up pts for the love of god. Take him off the PK rightnow.

I would agree with taking him off the PK. He's perfectly good at it, but no need to tire him out when others can do just as good a job.

I'm getting tired of HF though. It's wall to wall nonsense. If there was another forum of this size, I'd jump ship immediately. Never before have so many known so little but posted so much.

first of all, i thought everything was bryzgalov's fault. second, giroux makes or breaks this team. you can't base opinions off assumptions. He was dealing with all the baggage the team carried around last year and the captaincy that you know he takes seriously which is good. giroux turned hartnell into an all star for christs sake. He IS by far our best player and will continue to be. He got exactly what i think he should've gotten. The cap will go up like it always does and this will fit perfectly long term. He came close to getting some hardware 2 seasons ago ( hart and art ross, the cup is won only by a team of players) and i don't think there's a G.M in the league who wouldn't jump to give him that contract. Voracek was consistently asleep until G woke him up. I think he'll handle the pressure nicely since the vinny maneuver levels things out a little.
