That Giroux was left off the team yet again is not overly surprising, though he certainly made a strong case since the initial snub. What I did find interesting was Claude's approach to the possibility.
"I didn't give myself hope," Giroux said. "I didn't want to be disappointed again. It's unfortunate for Steven, he worked hard to come back and wanted to try to make the team and try to play. It's too bad to for him."
He's really learned from us Philly sports fans. Don't even hope.
Angry Claude Giroux. This could really be a good thing for the Flyers.
