JVR-Carter-Giroux is pretty awesome, but who would play with Richards two years from now?

A drafted player? Downie Lupul Hartnell

I hope Lupul is still here. And Gagne-Briere-Johnny Rightwing? Upshall, maybe? Not a bad top 9.

Appparently he's only 11pts off the record. He automatically has 5 games left so at this pace he paces it by a couple of points.

I'm wrong, I'm dumb.

Homer expects him at 100% for next year. He hasn't had any symptoms for a while, plus he's still in his twenties - - far from done.

I am not sure what you mean by he has automatically 5 games left. His team is up in the series 2-1. He just needs the to win the next 2 to win the series. He has 4 games left if they take it to 7.

Yeah that's a total screw up, for some reason I was thinking they were still in the semis. So I'm totaly wrong.

Honestly, on the top of my head, I can't remember a Quebecois forward as good as Claude Giroux since PM Bouchard...(If we exclude Paul Stastny who IMO isn't really a quebecois)

Giroux's offensive creativity and abilities are amazing.

Another late round steal by the Flyers.

Another late "FIRST" round steal by the Flyers.

Fixed.

Giroux is originally from Hearst, ON so he isn't really a Quebecois, either. Although Hearst is predominantly Francophone. BTW, I'm American, so I love telling Canadians that I know this.

Yep giroux is french-canadian but from ontario! Similar to luc bourdon who was from new-brunswick and the same goes to patrice cormier (08 prospects) and also jonathan and david toews from winnipeg

46 points in 17 playoff games for Giroux Those are some pretty outstanding stats. I havent gotten a chance to watch him in the playoffs yet? Has he outgrown the QMJHL and is he ready for the next step? Sure looks like it based on his stats at the moment.

He'll be taking a 2x step. There is no doubt in my mind he will be suiting up for the Flyers in the first game of next season barring injury

Hearst is a great little town. I got stuck there for 3 days when my car broke down. Everyone was very nice to me there and I got to watch a lot of Law and Order while sitting in a Motel Room.
