His "place"? You mean as the Flyers best, most consistant player this year? Ya, I think he's found his "place."

I don't have an issue with Pronger calling someone out for the most part. But (a)his game hasn't exactly been stellar this year.
(b)Giroux would be near the bottom of my list of people to call out on this team. And (c) doing it in public is wrong.

He didn't do it in public he did it in the locker room. It was the media (or was it actually Homer) that put it out there for the public to see.

They were there at the Phantoms game but then they weren't there at the Flyers vs. Oilers game

yeah I am sure our "writers" are always truthfull.
As far as Giroux shutting his "piehole" what is he supposed to do? let Pronger or anyone else get in his face after a game? Regardless of whether Pronger was right or not, Giroux has every right to give it back to him. i dont know what else was said or what actually what was said, and honestly I dont give a ****. I just dont buy this whole rift thing, and this whole "lack of respect thing" with Giroux.
Oh and where is this source of a rift.

If any of this **** is true, good on Giroux for standing up for himself. The fact that he's young is immaterial and he is the future of this franchise. Tell Pronger to shut his mouth and get back on the treadmill.

the GM seemed to approve. WTF - GWA (giroux with attitude) ?

get to the rear of the locker room, sit down and shut up

Claude when you score 40 or 50 goals a few years in a row then run your mouth.

As much as I like Pronger calling people out and stirring the pot, I hope Roo gave it back to him. That's good for the team.

Gonna be an awfully quiet locker room if those are the criteria for talking.

How does Giroux get nose to nose with Pronger? Did he use a stepstool?

Well that's rich coming from Pronger considering how he's been playing ; to quote what he said a couple of days ago "Talk is cheap" maybe he should take a page out of his book and start leading by example.

Don't get me wrong; I think Prongs is great, but calling out Roo when there's an arms length of players on our roster that have been underachieving during this stretch (including himself) is just stupid.

Claude might have had 3 giveaways, but who on our team hasn't? To be honest the only way we're getting out of this slump is if our Vets lead by example...not by bullying a third year player who's having an amazing year...

Don't you know Pronger is God around here? He is above reproach.

Heated discussions between teammates can happen.
I am sure that the issue is already resolved between them.

Pronger needs to look in a damn mirror if he wants to talk about people not playing to their ability this season. Also I cant stand the guy starting things, last year with richie and now giroux, the team is supposed to be run by the youth with the help of the vets not the other way around.

You're right. Time is much better spent fluffing inferior d-men...like Carle.

You mean that thing that was so terrible it inhibited them from helping Canada to a gold medal in the Olympics?

Oh, wait.

Getting on Giroux is valid. The guy's dynamic...when he's making plays, they're pretty impressive. When he's ****ing them up, it's just as noticeable...except in a bad way.

We are talking about the Flyers not team Canada, two different teams, two different situations, on Canada Pronger probably had more say then Richards, but on the Flyers Richards has more say over Pronger.

Edit.
And when Prongers screwining things up it is just as noticeable, the only reason people haven't said it is because he is a future HHOF

If we're here talking about Giroux why not Leino or Briere? These same mistakes that Giroux is being blasted for have been done by the both of them. Or are they immune to criticism too?
