And don't give me crap about injuries. They happen all the time for a number of reasons. It would suck to see G or anyone get hurt seriously in the Olympics, but that's not a reason to not compete.

Again, if you are worried that seven extra games is going to derail a season for Giroux or anyone else, maybe you should be worried about their physical conditioning instead. No reason for you to be concerned with the best athletes in the sport because they are playing in the Olympics. People say the same crap about the All-Star game.
I gotta disagree with you, as well. With Giroux's dainty fingers and this thing around, it might be very ill-advised for him to go anywhere near Sochi.
