Giroux vs. Forsberg??

Maybe the return of Peter Forsberg to Philadelphia happened after all.

No, not the real guy. He officially retired in relative obscurity a couple weeks back.

Instead, the 21-year-old, on-ice doppelganger of the talented Swede has emerged inside a Flyers’ locker room, 15 years after the original burst onto the scene in Colorado after he was traded away as part of the Eric Lindros deal.
 
Yeah, we’re talking Claude Giroux. Yeah he’s got that skill set. Yeah, he could develop into one of the game’s best players. And no, I’m not blowing smoke in your eyes.

 

Could be interesting. I thought the article (link) was really interesting. I don't know that Giroux will become one of the best ever, but I think he has the capacity to. The guy's been getting better and better at an astonishing rate every year (really, every game). What's his ceiling? Does Philly now have 4 elite centers (Richards/Carter/Briere/Giroux)? 5 if you count vanRiemsdyk?

 

Also, what does that mean for Briere's future? He's been playing well, maybe there could be a taker for him in a trade. It'd be nice to have enough room to sign a few guys and fill up multiple holes since we score at a great clip and Briere almost seems like surplus.
