I am cetainly not taking anything away from Nodl, I like him and have followed him for quite sometime (mainly because when I first saw him, knowing the right way to pronounce his name, I called him noodle). I am just not sure if he is ready to get the call up yet, although we shall see soon enough. I went to a playoff game last year vs. Wilks and thought he looked non existent and slightly out of place. Maybe he has looked better this year but...
Because Nodl has outplayed Giroux. Simple as that. Pro sports remain a pure meritocracy in most instances with some complicating factors.
