Claude Giroux isn't happy with how he's been playing.

"The bottom line is, the team’s gotta be better," Giroux said. "Personally, I've got to be better. I've got to play up to my standards and right now, that’s not the case and it’s frustrating. You want to do everything you can to help the team and that’s not the case right now." Giroux has been limited to two goals and 10 points in his last 20 games. Unfortunately, he's seen his production steadily decline from its peak of 93 points in 2011-12, to 86, 73, and 67 points in each of the last three campaigns. This season he might see his point production dip further as he has 41 points in 55 contests.
