'Best player in the world'

2

Maybe Peter Laviolette was right when he called Claude Giroux the best player in the world. (And remember how big of a joke it was when G didn't make the Canadian Olympic team?)

In all seriousness, best player in the world or not, he is certainly an elite talent, and no matter where the Flyers might be in the standings, we're blessed to watch Claude Giroux play hockey every night.
