As soon as the Shea weber ordeal is resolved (hopefully with him being on the flyers next season) the flyers need to immediately turn their attention to resigning giroux long term. For two reasons:
1) the Flyers will be a target for having their RFA signed to offer sheets and with their constant salary cap issues they might not be in a position to match every offer, especially with players like giroux schenn and couturier coming RFA around the same time.
2) the CBA is up and these long front loaded contracts will probably be eliminated or the cap hit being the actually salary in lieu of the average salary. So the next few months will be the only time to sign giroux to a similar deal of weber, suter, & parise.
I say a 13 year, 100 mil deal could do the trick...
