Does Claude Giroux still make Canadian Olympic team?

No. And neither should Eric Staal.

Keith - Weber

Vlasic Subban

Hamhuis-Letang

Price
Luongo
Crawford
Getzlaf doesn't do the wing, and he's a pretty safe bet to be one of the four centers.

I think he's one of those bubble players now. If he picks it up and some of the players streaking start to faulter he will make it on the team.

canada has enough depth at forward to not risk taking an underperforming player

way rather take a solid forward like duchene, couture, benn or even lucic rather than giroux at this point

I still think he makes it based upon reputation but if he continues to struggle he'll make it as an extra and not as a starter.

Since they can't seem to make good Canada teams anymore, I'd bet he does.

Strange. I mean, I agree with the World Juniors and such, those teams selected are horrible year after year (Nathan MacKinnon used as a checker last year?). But Canada won the Gold medal at the 2010 Olympics with pretty much the best possible roster we could bring. With the exception of Stamkos everyone of our best players were there.

I wouldn't have picked Giroux back in the summer either, and still wouldn't. Look, nothing against him, but there are going to be some great Canadian centers NOT on this team. Giroux, Richards and Spezza come to mind immediately. Who knows, one of the likes of Staal, Getzlaf or Tavares may not be there (although I'd find room for them). Crosby, Toews, Bergeron and Stamkos are the only locks at center I think. It's tough to crack this roster up the middle. Always has been. Denis Savard, Ron Francis, Bernie Federko, Pierre Turgeon and Adam Oates never played for Canada at the top level.

I'm glad he scored, I thought for sure he'd get it against the Pens.

Yeah it's too bad they can't make those second place teams like the States do

Spezza pretty much stole his job at this point. Giroux would have to single-handedly drag Philly back into playoff contention kicking and screaming to make up the ground he's lost.

Not a chance. Unless he has an amazing next couple of months he shouldn't be considered.

I wouldn't leave Giroux off. He's awesome and he's slumping terribly. But so what? He's a two-way threat. Put him with Toews, deadly.

Stamkos Crosby Tavares
Duchene Getzlaf Perry
Giroux Toews Nash(if healthy)
Carter Bergeron M. Richards
E. Staal St. Louis
Lucic Couture
