Default Please trade Giroux.

This guy can score points. He can get the emotional win. But he can not lead this team on a Tuesday night to critical points. Never could. Hockey teams need a consistent reliable captain that can outclass other teams in a moment. Heís not in that class. You put a legitimate captain on this team with all this talent they can win. Iím over the goalie shit thatís no longer the problem. Lazy D. No urgency. Thatís on the captain.

They are like 18-5-2 in their last 25 games. Last night they lost because young guys f'd up and it costs them.

that too. Flyers can hang with some teams but the caps are just a bigger and faster team.

Flyers are probably a couple years away.

On the Giroux thing, they probably can't trade him anyway because of his contract. Same with Voracek.

I was all for moving him, jake and Simmonds but realistically Jake and Giroux are real tough too move.

Ha what?

You're right, what this team needs are 10 Dan Carcillos. Guys who want that critical win on a Tuesday. Guys who care.

No. They need to be led by someone that understands the criticality of each game. Look at all of the teams having success, they have a bona fide super star captain. G would be a beloved Assistant. Obviously you all must look at the stats and watch the big high profile games but if you're slogging through with this team every night you can see how lazy and unsure they appear. I hate this young BS. You're a professional athlete. You need to perform. I do not see other teams with this much talent underperforming this way. I would make LAUGHTON the captain TODAY! The Islanders are keeping us in the mix to be honest.

Ahhh a nice 5 unanswered goals after the halfway mark. Now thatís a captain. Really conveying discipline and ensuring the necessary win. One day youíll see theyíll never win with this guy leading them.

So last night's win was...emotional, but neither critical nor necessary?

Right, seeing as they have a 2.6% chance to make the playoffs because they blew all the critical junctures. This is like a consolation prize -- hey we beat the Penguins!!! Not impressed. Get the wins you need to overcome the hole you put yourself in. Get the wins you need to pull within a point of the playoffs. I do not believe Giroux will be leading this team when they do finally win.

Also guys, I do not blame 7 goal nights on a goaltender and neither should you. This is what happens when you are not disciplined and do not have a captain that can MAKE YOU WIN when its absolutely critical!!! Your defense is soft. Turnovers. Poor passing. I'd like to see a Penguins game where they are playing like the Flyers do most nights.

Oh, got it. You're trolling/playing a character.

Better than the alternative, which is that you actually believe your hot taeks.

They're turning it around. They're on the right track. This/next/the following year they're going to put it all together. Keep the faith.

Expect Giroux to have a BIG game tonight. Critical points against an inferior opponent at home. I will hold my breath. Desperately hope I am mistaken. "I may be wrong, but I doubt it!!!"

How exactly are the Canadians an "inferior opponent?"

Both teams have played 72 games.

Montreal has 81 points.

Philly has 78.
