Briere: Can’t Fault Giroux For His Competitiveness
The 2016-2017 NHL year has been a roller coaster ride so farfor the Flyers as they are 23-19-6 this season. Their Captain, Claude Giroux, is fourth on the team in Goals with 11 and second on the team in Assists with 28. Some people believe that the team Captain is supposed to have more of an offensive impact from game to game then Giroux has at times during his Flyers career.
Danny Briere, who played for the Flyers from 2007-2013, joined The Sports Bash on Tuesday and talked about his former teammate Claude Giroux:
"Knowing Claude he's very competitive, he doesn't accept half measures and when things are not working and the team is not winning as often as he feels they should, he takes it up his shoulders to try and turn that around. Sometimes that's not the best way to go, maybe you relax a little bit and kind of slow things down; it's not easy to do, you want to take control but sometimes it's better to let things come to you. But one thing you can't fault him is his competitiveness and how much he wants it, how much better he wants to get everything single day. I've always said Claude is probably, if not one of the most, (the most) competitive guy I've had the chance to play with."
