    Maroon has the most goals, assists and points. A couple more games than some others but wow, all we hear about regularly is Giroux, (not a bad thing) but you never really hear anything about Maroon. H3ll, I'd want him on the team just for the character of that name. What a perfect hockey name and the skills to go with it.

            Yeah, "Maroon" on the back of a Flyers sweater. Opposing fans are going to have a field day with that one! Hey, if he scores goals, who cares?

              Giroux is actually 3 months older. They were both eligible for the 06 draft, but Maroon didn't get drafted until a year later in the 6th round. That's why he doesn't get as much hype.

              • Quick hits with Claude Giroux

                BOUCHERVILLE, Saturday, February 16, 2008 – This week, the official website of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League presents an interview with Gatineau Olympiques all-star winger Claude Giroux.

                You were a member of Canada’s national junior squad at the 2008 World Junior Championship. What made the experience so special?

                "The atmosphere in the dressing room was incredible. You had a collection of team leaders from across the Canadian Hockey League. It was interesting to see how everybody supported each other throughout the tournament."

                What were the key messages of head coach Craig Hartsburg?

                "He was always reminding us that we were representing our country. I think that there were a few teams which were a bit stronger than us, but he said that if we wanted to win, all we had to do is work even harder."

                You were selected in the first round by the Philadelphia Flyers at the NHL Entry Draft a few years ago. Are you in constant communication with the organization?

                "I speak to them from time to time, but nothing more. I don’t think that they want to distract me from what I’m trying to do with the Olympiques."

                When do you believe you’ll be ready to make the jump to the NHL?

                "It’s hard to say; maybe next year or two to three years from now. It depends on the Flyers, but I’ll be ready to attack at camp this summer."

                Until then, have the Flyers asked you to keep working on specific aspects of your game?

                "They’d like me to get quicker and stronger, since I’ll be facing much bigger players in the NHL."

                You are one of the “Q’s” top point-getters. What are your biggest assets?

                "I have good vision. Also, we have a good team this year, so it’s easier for me to make plays."

                The Olympiques made a few moves during the trade period. What has the atmosphere been like in the dressing room in the second half of the season?

                "I think that we have a good group of players. Every day, we’re having fun out there. All the guys are happy to be here and it shows. The new players didn’t have any trouble adapting. It was fast and easy."

                Gatineau is third in the TELUS division standings. What will be the focus as the team gets ready for the playoffs?

                "Ideally, we want to get better each game. We’re working hard every day to try to do things better and that’s our main goal until season’s end."
