It seems like everyone has hopped aboard the Claude Giroux bandwagon, with people throwing around Peter Forsberg comparisons and proclaiming Giroux one of the top players in the league. Here's what we wrote about the Flyers' phenom back on October 8:
"Claude Giroux is a genuine, modern day Penguin killer. He scares [us] more than any other Flyer forward, and it's not even close."
The fact that Philadelphia just tied this kid up for 3 years, $11.25 million is not a good development the rest of the division.
