#3 – Claude Giroux, Philadelphia Flyers
No Mike Richards or Jeff Carter? No problem for the Philadelphia Flyers, who shipped those two veteran centers out of town and established the young Claude Giroux as their top offensive weapon. With 76 points last season and 32 this year (tied for 3rd in the NHL), the early results are strongly in Giroux’s favor right now. The fans in Philly will be sporting his #28 at the Wachovia Center, at the 2012 Winter Classic, and all over town for years to come!
