we can say "rallying cry" for the flyers all we want - the fact remains, he's an excellent player and the flyers are worse with him out of the lineup. that's not to say that they can't be very good tomorrow and win that game. but i'll take giroux missing a game if i have the option

well - considering that he's going to be the first forward to get his # retired here, i'd say he sits with the greats pretty well. stevens and marty are 1 and 2 but neidermayer and elias duke it out for 3 and 4. daneyko is #5.
he can replace rob skrlac as the guy who hands out jerseys at games but his ideas of playing a goaltender as much as possible and defensemen not blocking shots are not instituional foundations i'd want my team built on.
