Giroux, Burns go in 13th round
25. Claude Giroux, Philadelphia, C/W (Team Staal)
26. Brent Burns, Minnesota, D (Team Lidstrom)


Giroux is having a big season for the Flyers, scoring goals in all situations. Clearly Staal is thinking about special teams with this selection.

As for Burns, Lidstrom plays against him enough in the Western Conference that he felt he had to go with him, but I'm sort of surprised he didn't go with the Swede D-man on the board, Erik Karlsson.

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
