Jeremy Roenick has a key message for Claude Giroux

The Philadelphia Flyers missed the playoffs for their third time in the last five seasons. Missing the playoffs is not the norm in Philly, where the Flyers had missed the playoffs only twice in the previous 18 seasons. Captain Claude Giroux who scored a career low in goals with 14, and 58 points in 82 games, was a big reason why the Flyers missed the playoffs.

Former Flyers center and NBC analyst, Jeremy Roenick, has a message for Claude Giroux.

If I was sitting in front of Claude Giroux right here today, I would say, You need to make amends and you need to have a bounce-back season and show everybody why you have been one of the better players over the last five years and last year was just a bad-luck situation. This team is going to run on Claude Giroux, Wayne Simmonds and Jake Voracek.
If Claude is watching right now, I love you to death, put it back together, show everybody why you're one of the best competitors in the game and get back up into that top-scoring aspect. And don't worry about slumps and don't worry about what people think of you, just be Claude Giroux. And if he does that, this team is going to prosper.

What do you think, will the 29 year-old Claude Giroux lead his team to the playoffs next season?
