Could Giroux be traded? What's he worth?

I wonder what Philly could get for Giroux if they decide to trade him this season. It's not a totally unrealistic possibility, since they've done some crazy things in the past when they performed poorly.

Just for the fun of it ..i would offer Pacioretty + Tinordi + 1st OR Eller + Subban
But Giroux wont be traded.
Flyers aren't suddently a bad team , they're injured and have a bad start thats it

He's young, his contract is SO good (2 years left at 3.75M) and he's their best player so it wouldn't make much sense unless the return was substantial. In terms of what they'd want, I'd assume it would be a centre who can play in the top 6, a really good defenceman, and likely some prospects/picks to top it off. It's so hard to gauge the value of a really good player on a really good team because the return has to provide immediate impact.

If the offer was right I'd trade anyone on the Flyers. That being said Snider wont let it happen. They'd just find it embarrassing to trade two captains in two years.

flyers could get the blue line help they need and a good pick--by blue line help I mean a guy who will play top4 minutes--not a scrub who is playing 5-6 on a team and their fan base will TRY SO HARD to convince flyer fans that he would be one of their top guys

His value is the lowest it's been? That's just terrible asset management.

Well, it seems like giroux's not playing the captain role well. And it's harder to strip him of the C then it is to trade him.

They need someone with pronger type leadership.

Ok. Canucks offer up Kassian, Jensen and a 1st round pick in 2013 2nd round pick in 2013

But instead of this, just cut Claude some slack. He just went from basically no responsibilities to being Captain of a VERY storied franchise.

Its messing with his head a bit. He thinks he has to be 2 years more mature than he is and take all his team mates problems on his shoulders. All new captains go through this process until they find themselves.

Chris Pronger would be a great help here but I think Kimmo should be trying to give him guidance.

He will be fine.

We'd be looking at something like Edler/Kesler + +

Timonen should've been the captain, not giroux.

The mistake they made is making their highest scoring player the captain on the basis of his scoring (At least that's my speculation on it, because he never did anything to demonstrate that he's captain material, and I highly doubt he asked for the position). Just because a player can score doesn't mean they're cut out to be captain. Like gaborik doesn't wear a letter because that's not the type of player he is.

Yes, it is an unrealistic possibility. Giroux was named captain of the franchise just 1 month and 1 day ago.

If you honestly think they are shopping him, then I don't even know what to say.

So you don't even include Galchenyuk for one of the world's best forwards.

Galchenyuk, Subban, 1st, etc.

I love baseless statements like this.

Who's opinion on the matter should I take:

A. The GM, coach, fellow teammates

or

B. hfboards.com poster Hockey Team.



Flyers players have been saying that Giroux has been the leader of the team for over a year now.

Lock this thread up. Too much ****ing stupidity.

LMAO at people saying he's a poor Captain... he's only been Captain for a month.

Give the guy at least a season before you evaluate his performance.

And to the guy saying Giroux isn't a leader... are you serious? He's been the unquestioned leader of the Flyers for at least the past year if not past two years.

Giroux isn't going anywhere.

And i'm not even a Flyers fan...

If he were available, which he's not, I would hope Doug Wilson could pull off the Joe Thornton debacle 2.0.

Havlat+Wingels+Vlasic. Make it happen.

If Claude Giroux is on the market, 29 team are interested.

Absolutely crazy to think the Flyers would trade Giroux, but the Habs offers PK Subban + 1st round pick + Nathan Beaulieu/Jarret Tinordi.

I think an offer like that makes the Flyers management think about it IF they want to trade Giroux.

Ahh.. yes. THE REASON why the Flyers are doing poorly is, and only because, Giroux is their captain.
