Luongo firing his agent is interesting. There is really no reason to do it besides his agent could not get a trade for him out of Vancouver. It's just speculation, but it kind of makes sense. His former agent(Luipen) still receives the money from his contract. Sportsnet.ca is speculating his new agents(Brisson and Barry) get some sort of bonus if they can facilitate a trade out of Vancouver for him.
That was another thought I had, but it is being heavily speculated now he is unhappy in Vancouver. He never wanted to return.
Also, everyone go over to the Giroux a top 5 center poll on the main boards. I put it in there also, but three players in the last three years have more points than Giroux, and they are Stamkos/St Louis/H.Sedin. Now only 4 average a better PPG than him in that same time span(Crosby/Malkin/Stamkos/St Louis). Anyone saying he isn't a top 5 center, are fooling themselves
It was a bump thread.

Reason: Went Gangster for a second yall.
What reasonable argument is there to put Tavares over Giroux as far as Center's go. I don't understand the main board love affair. I think I need to just retire from anywhere but here.
You know he is so young and has all that potential, he was taken 1st overall. There is no way Giroux could be better than him. He does have the potential to be there soon, but right now, Giroux is the better offensive player, as well as all rounder player.
Offensively he's better, Defensively he's better, Tavares was in the top 20 2 years ago for giveaways and was #7 in the league last year for giveaways. Giroux's never been higher then 75th in the league. Faceoff's are night and day. 1 plays the PK the other doesn't.
You should post those stats over there. Also I love when people just ignore post that prove a player is better than the other, but still try to make an argument about it. Also he says Dats is better than Giroux..... not sure how he came up with that.
