08:21 AM ET 11.21 | For his part, Claude Giroux maintains he is "fine." [Giroux] is returning to the United States to be examined by the same doctor who treated Sidney Crosby's concussion, the Daily News has learned. Giroux, 24, suffered a neck injury with an illegal check to the head last Friday night during an overtime loss for Eisbaren Berlin in the German Elite League. His agent, CAA Sports' Pat Brisson, told the Daily News on Tuesday that Giroux will be traveling to Atlanta to visit controversial specialist Dr. Frederick "Ted" Carrick. ... Brisson said Giroux is visiting Carrick as a "precaution" and "we don't believe it's serious." To this point, the word "concussion" has not been used with Giroux.

Taking an illegal check to the head playing in the German league.............real smart call Claude. Hopefully your agent has the brains to not have bought a two way ticket when you fly back.

So, when the NHL is back in business you will feel the same way if Grabovski, Gunnarsson, Holzer or Kulemin get hurt?
