Giroux has a NMC and I highly doubt that he would waive it to go to Buffalo, a team in far worse condition than the up and coming Flyers
If you think Philly's team without Giroux is better than Buffalo when it comes to the future you must be a Philly fan. Philly's future isn't very bright, they have some young defense prospects, but no real game changing forwards of youth. Konecny is a 2nd tier guy and so is Rubtsov. Who exactly is your young franchise forward aka Eichel?
