The Flyers just updated the status of the concussed Claude Giroux. Here's what Paul Holmgren said:
"Claude reported not feeling very good today. Over the past few days, his symptoms have gradually gotten worse. He will be out indefinitely with a concussion"
I’ll reiterate what I wrote yesterday: Given what’s going on with Chris Pronger and the lingering concussion issues of Sidney Crosby, you can’t help but fear the worst about Giroux’s concussion. He was scheduled to meet with doctors today, and – clearly – that visit didn’t go very well. Holmgren generally downplays injuries, so the mere fact that he’s saying Giroux has gotten “worse” is a bad sign. Also, when Holmgren told reporters last night that Giroux just had “whiplash,” he was 100% lying– probably.
