Once Foppa traded himself for the good of the Flyers, I was devoid of my favorite guy for sometime. I thought Carter was gonna be my guy. Thankfully I didnt rush on a jersey.
Dear Homer LOCK GIROUX UP!!!!!!!
Seriously, I want to see a Cannon-like contract with Giroux. I am convinced at this point that he is not a bust, and he has the potential to be a serious point-producer in this league...might as well lock him up for his career.
The guy has been a winner on every stage he played at. I've been a huge fan from day one and have made lots of noise about Giroux. He's got greatness written all over him. The one thing that I love about his game is that he wants to be the best, does whatever he can to win, and is never content with things. The guy is a more offensive version of Richards. I'll say this right now - Giroux will make Carter expendable.....wow, even I can't believe I said that.....
I knew Giroux would be something the day we drafted him. The first avatar I had on this board was Giroux. When we had the big Downie vs Giroux thread, I was one of the ones defending Giroux till the end. The kid didnt even get drafted into the OHL, people thought he was too small to play, and had to TRYOUT for the QMJHL. He has fought through everything to get here.
