Injuries to Giroux, Palmieri, McGinn, camp updates and more...
I’m beginning to realize that very little training camp news, is good news. Most of my updates today are injury related, which sucks. Granted some of those are about players who are now healthy but still, it is injury news.
Let’s start off with Claude Giroux who has a lower-body injury that will keep him out for the next two weeks. That’s most of training camp and if it’s a nagging injury it could lead to another slow start. I wouldn’t change my draft position on Giroux he should be picked in and around the top 10 in most pools. I certainly wouldn’t be afraid to take him.
If anything, this could be a chance to pick on whoever does end up taking Giroux. We saw last year how a slow start lowered his trade value. If that happens again, you might get Giroux on
