Giroux waiving his no-trade before the deadline has led to trade rumours involving the Flyers, but what may surprise some is the mention of longtime Flyers captain Claude Giroux. This week, Giroux was asked about the possibility of waiving his trade protection, but he quickly dismissed the idea.

"I'm not worried about that right now," Giroux said as per the Philadelphia Inquirer. "I'm just worried about games coming up and we're in a hole right now. Thinking about that stuff is not going to help the team get out of this. Still got a lot of confidence in this group. I really believe we win one here, we might win a few in a row here. Confidence is a big part of it right now."
For the Flyers, it makes sense because Giroux is in the final year of an 8-year, $66.2 million contract. It's understandable that the Flyers would want to trade him if they were likely to miss the playoffs, as they are now. A free agent at the end of the season, Giroux could theoretically leave the Flyers empty-handed.
