08:20 AM ET 09.26 | By his own admission, Claude Giroux's summer has grown too long. The cover boy for the NHL 13 video game is hanging around Ottawa, hoping a deal between locked-out NHL players and the NHL gets worked out soon. But [Giroux] is growing increasingly frustrated and is starting to weigh options to play in Europe. "I'm getting a little bored here just working out," said the 24-year-old Giroux, who has risen to elite status as a winger with the Philadelphia Flyers. "I kind of want to play games ... get that rush of playing in hockey games. I want to make sure I'm in good shape, so I think it's a good option for me to go and play somewhere. I'm talking to my agent to see where I could go. I want to play some good, quality hockey."

If you listen closely you can hear the anger and disgust building. Be afraid, be very afraid. :-(

He isn't. The Flyers drafted this guy to replace him. They said he's more mobile.
