Claude Giroux is Officially the Flyers’ Captain

Now we can finally stop talking about what was inevitable and play some hockey. From the Flyers' website:

The Philadelphia Flyers today named Claude Giroux the 19th captain in the franchise’s history, according to general manager Paul Holmgren.  In addition, Holmgren announced that Kimmo Timonen will serve as associate captain, while Scott Hartnell and Danny Briere will serve as alternate captains. 


We’re not sure what an associate captain is, but OK. 

You can customize your own Claude Giroux captain Flyers jersey at the league’s official store.

  1. Poor choice IMO. Giroux has poor leadership skills and is a locker room cancer. I thought Jody Shelley would have been the obvious choice.

  2. I’m shocked that Kyle was able to post about Giroux’s captaincy without poking fun at his concussion from last year.

  3. Wonder if that penny pinching pos Eddie Snider will eventually give G an extension?
    Dirty old man doesn’t care about winning a cup & just wants to make a buck

  4. Can only imagine all the Delco trash spending their welfare check on C’s on their fake winter classic jerseys

  5. I would like to congratulate Mr. Giroux on the well deserved promotion. Let us all hope that he does not suffer the same fate as previous Philadelphia Flyers captains who are suffering from or who have suffered from a serious brain injury.

  6. Hey Propper I have contacts within the flyers organization that you could only dream about. Giroux drove Carter and Richards out of town. Is it a coincidence that they both have a Stanley cup now? Add giroux’s poor attitude and conditioning with Ed snider’s cheap ways and the flyers are doomed.

  7. Never forget seeing a bloated fat pot belly G walking around old city last September. Looks like he never lifted a day in his life

  8. “I have contacts within the flyers organization that you could only dream about.” – Usually the first indication that the person posting this is a toolbag who knows someone who knows someone who knows someone who sells popcorn and may or may not have access to the tunnel outside the locker room.

  9. He will never be elite until he gets stronger…he gets knocked off the puck way too easily. Lift some weights.

  10. Capt Jack Giroux proved he’s a leader on that first shift vs Crosby.
    Carter and Richards were party boys. no motivation.
    Inside info ? Information is a weapon. depends on how you use it.
    Kyle has Giroux’s cell # know how i know ?
    I gave it to him.

  11. Maybe Capt Jack can tell us if Laviollette has figured out how to counter a trap then.
