Did we expect to discuss Claude Giroux’s future throughout the 2021-22 season? Of course. He entered the campaign as a pending UFA, about to finish an eight-year pact carrying an $8.275-million AAV. He was the longest-tenured captain in Philadelphia Flyers history but was 33 when the season started and clearly past his prime. Speculation on whether the Flyers would commit a chunky cap hit to him again was natural. So was speculation on whether he’d sign with the Ottawa Senators in summer 2022 given he calls Ottawa home.
