Claude Giroux thinks the Philadelphia Flyers should be in the playoffs.
Giroux thinks there is plenty of talent on this year's edition of the team and can't believe the Flyers are 12 points out of a playoff spot. "I'm not the only one frustrated. I think everyone in the room is frustrated," Giroux said. "Instead of me going in and yelling at everybody, I think it's important we stick together and we do this together. We can't be blaming and pointing fingers. I think it's important we stick together, and if we do this, we're going to get out of this hole." Jakob Voracek and Giroux are first and tied for third respectively in the race for the Art Ross Trophy, so it is a bit surprising the Flyers are so far back with that scoring duo. Jan 25 - 8:45 AM
