Now NHL rumors are starting to swirl that the Philadelphia Flyers could look to trade Claude Giroux. Giroux’s name did float around the rumor mill in the offseason after reports serviced that the Flyers and Giroux would not talk about a contract extension until the season is over.
Elliotte Friedman was on Sportsnet’s Jeff Marek Show and stated, “I’ve wondered about him going to Ottawa”.
Friedman went on to say, “I think if you’re the Flyers you kinda have to be thinking about is it time to say if they already changed a bit of their core last year, they have to be asking themselves do we need to go any further?”
Giroux will be an unrestricted free agent and does own a full no-move clause which means he will have a say on where he is traded.
