It looked pretty high. I doubt Shanahan will do anything.

Giroux needs to sit for a game or two.

He should get a game.  Neal got a game for less against Giroux.  With that being said Shanadouche won’t do a thing.

He should get a game.  You know, the remainder of Philly’s season.

Seriously though, I told my wife when we saw the hit in real-time that Giroux was done for the year, and that he’s starting to get a rep I don’t think he wants to have.  I’m incredibly disappointed with what I see him trying to get away with this playoffs.

He should be suspended for one game. The series is over on tuesday away. Plus it sends a message that superstars aren’t exempt from same punishment. But Shanban working the wheel of justice as we speak!

That was a perfect example of headhunting, Shanny should make sure he’s gone for the rest of this series (probably one game). Giroux had a concussion this year, he should be the last guy hitting people in the head on purpose. Shanny has to find a way to get these guys under control.

Giroux had been one of my favorite players prior to this post-season. However his antics this post-season have soured me as a fan, much the way Crosby’s behavior did in round one.
