Also amusing: Giroux doesn't perform well with injured wrists. It's ok, he's injured. If the same thing happened with Carter it would be called choking. It's utterly nonsensical. If Carter tries to play through it, he's a choker. If he sits out, he's a choker. Ridiculous.

Are you serious? The whole team didn't do squat in the Devils series. Giroux has also been a tremendous playoff performer his whole career. One bad series was bound to happen to him. Just like one good one was bound to happen for Carter.
And most of the team was crap in the Buffalo series, and Carter missed nearly half of it. Yet that makes him a choker?

Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
