It's hard for me to imagine why they left Giroux off the team as well. Basically, they should have left Kunitz/Carter/Bouwmeester at home and brought St. Louis/Giroux/Seabrook. These seemed to be pretty obvious choices. They need a RH play-maker and Giroux would have fit very well with, say, Duchene/Tavares.

I hate the Flyers, but the exclusion of Claude Giroux is inexcusable. He brings all the elements desired: speed, skill, defense, leadership and versatility. Who cares that he started the season poorly as he recovered from that golf injury?
