08:15 AM ET 12.06 | For the first time since suffering a neck/shoulder injury while playing for the Berlin Polar Bears three weeks ago, Claude Giroux was back on the ice Wednesday, which should come as welcome news in Philadelphia. "I'm doing better, but it's a process and I need to understand that," said Giroux. ... Giroux was on the ice for the full 90 minutes of the spirited workout, but he's making no predictions on when he might possibly be ready to return to action, whether that's in Philadelphia (if the NHL lockout ends) or back in Europe (if the lockout drags on). "It's hard to say right now," said Giroux, who scored four goals and 15 assists in nine games with Berlin. "Obviously, I'm doing something every day to make sure I get back in game shape."

Works for me...never have neck/shoulder troubles when partaking of the Warsteiner...now a Bavarian belly on the other hand, that's totally different.

Surely this "wake up" call injury is enough to keep him from going back ?

I always find a nice Ommegang Abbey Ale does wonders for those things also
