    This is where we disagree -- I think Giroux is still a 70-90 point player, especially if he actually has someone around him who can finish. Hell,...

    If we draft a goalie in the first round, he had better be the product of an unholy union between Patrick Roy, Dominic Hasek and Henrik Lundqvist.
