Watch: Giroux Salvages a Point for the Flyers

..Points are points and while the Flyers didn’t deserve any last night, they worked hard the last half of the third period to even the score and wrap up a point.  The OT loss stunk, but the reaction of Giroux on this one is priceless.  I was going nuts after he tied it.

…Still say Carcillo should be the odd-man out, but it appears I’m never going to get my way.  Look for these to be the combo’s tomorrow night against Tampa.

LAROSE AND GIROUX SHARE A NAME AND A SMALL TOWN

…Pretty cool story from Seravalli.  Much like Claude Larose was the past hero for the folks from Hearst, Claude Giroux has now taken up that title.  Of course, Claude Larose won five Stanley Cups – all with the Montreal Canadiens.  I guess that means we in Philly are due for five with Giroux.


Claude Giroux is a Mid-Season Fantasy Hockey MVP

FANTASY HOCKEY: WHO’S THE MID-SEASON MVP?

I believe a true fantasy sports guru knows how to get maximum value from players picked low in the draft. That’s why my fantasy MVP is Claude Giroux, who I predicted would have a break-out season way back in our second column of the season. But, truth be told, his stats make my bragging completely warranted. Check out the numbers. The Flyers forward was selected, on average, 146th in Yahoo! drafts, which is the 14th round. Despite being drafted so low, Giroux finds himself in 15th in league scoring. That’s a difference of 131 spots.

…Always nice to see a Flyer involved in MVP talks, whether it’s fantasy or not.  Giroux has arguably been the Flyers’ REAL LIFE MVP through the first half or so of this season, and I’m anxious to see what else he has left in his arsenal through the final quarter of games or so.
