Connor McDavid compares himself to Claude Giroux -- not Sidney Crosby

Yes. From an NHL.com story: While others have compared McDavid to Crosby, McDavid has steered clear. Instead he's said he admires the 200-foot game and offensive ability of one of Crosby's rivals, Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux. "I'd compare myself to someone who is very reliable in his own zone and can be put out there in the last two minutes of a game to either score a goal or to defend the goal," McDavid said. h/t Alex

Claude Giroux celebrates Canada's World Championship win with beer, no clothes

So, Canada won the 2015 IIHF World Championship today, beating Russia 6-1. Claude Giroux, Sean Couturier and Brayden Schenn will all be bringing gold medals home with them, and that's awesome. #Gold pic.twitter.com/wtHblAMsRZ — Brayden Schenn (@Bschenn_10) May 17, 2015 What's more awesome?

PLAYOFF & IIHF SUPER AWESOME OPEN THREAD May 3/15

Sometimes, you have a moment of inspiration. Others, your alarm doesn't go off, and well... here we are.

Claude Giroux just...
