Of course Timmy P got it wrong to start with. I'm glad I only heard about it with the finger surgery announcement.

Giroux should not miss any time for a finger injury , I simply don't want to hear it.

hopefully this doesnt affect his training too much nor his stickhandling.

Me thinks G lost his anger and broke his club, which cut his finger

Maybe the ball was behind a tree and he just decide to go for it, smashing the trunk? I have done that, but never more than dented a club. But then again, I don't have G's super human strength.

Short of hitting a tree root, it sounds like he really sucks at golf.

No Flyers shall be permitted to play golf from this day forward. Write it into their contract.

So who moves up to #1 center if G isn't 100%? I guess Vinny?? (Just writing that makes me glad to have him on our team)

I'll take this as a good omen. The last time the best player on one of "my" teams suffered a freak offseason injury they won the whole thing.

Snapping a shaft isn't all that uncommon, especially if you're using whippy clubs. I watched a couple college golfers that I used to play with snap the heads right off their drivers. A wedge though... that's pretty crazy. I have a feeling he slammed it and it broke, which is still pretty hard to do.

Here is more info and quotes...

Quote:
According to Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren, Giroux underwent surgery at Ottawa Civic Hospital to repair extensor tendons in the finger. These tendons are located at the top of fingers, connecting to the forearm. They control bending and straightening motion.

“Apparently this tendon was the one that lifts the finger,” Holmgren said Thursday night. “If you put your palm on a table, it’s the one that moves the index finger up.”

That’s rather important for hockey players who like to get a good grip on a stick. Or a golf club.

Holmgren said he thought Giroux was chipping near a green when the freakish accident happened.

“I know Claude’s a good golfer,” Holmgren said, erasing any thought that Giroux might have been a common country club shaft smasher. “He was hitting down when the club hit the ground and it splintered. It went into where the finger is connected to the hand and it damaged one of the tendons.

“He went to see doctors up there and we consulted our doctors and everyone felt it was better to have (the surgery) done right away.”

Holmgren said Giroux did not suffer damage to the bone.

Exactly. You don't just hit a ball and a shaft snaps in half. I've never heard of that happening in playing golf for 15 years fairly regularly. Anyway, I hope he has a speedy recovery.

Yeah losing the head on a driver is a FAR different thing that snapping a shaft on a wedge from a chip near the green. He probably got pissed off and slammed the club.

IM saying this right now. This injury is way more serious than people on here believe. Especially for a hockey player that depends on stick-handling as much as giroux.

I'll worry about it when I'm given a reason to, the season doesn't start for another month & a half.

If you want to go in that direction, I think they would be more concerned with the fact that he already had multiple wrist surgeries before the age of twenty-five.

If Giroux doesn't score on his first shift, the whole season is toast.
