    For one year and one million, I'd be willing to take a flyer on that. The guy skill has skills. It's a very low-risk signing....if he doesn't work out, waive him or HS him. It's not like they gave...

    It's a terrible idea....Giroux is a possession pivot who performs best with the puck on his stick. Not to mention that he's one of our best face-off players and a very underrated defender.

    Vinny is still more than capable of putting up 25/30/55 with moderate ice time. He's still the best one timer (outside of Giroux)...

    But--we lost a total of five games to divisional opponents during that stretch:

    10/6 to CAR
    10/17 to PIT
    11/1 to WSH
    11/5 to CAR (OTL)
    11/7 to NJD

    That's the first 16 games of last season.
