Claude Giroux and Danny Briere are bound for Germany.The Philadelphia centres have signed with Eisbaren Berlin of Germany's top league for the duration of the NHL lockout, according to ESPN.com.The website says veteran agent Pat Brisson, who represents both players, confirmed the signings.Giroux was third in NHL scoring last season with 93 points (28 goals, 65 assists).Briere had an off year by his standards, with 16 goals and 33 assists in 70 games.With Giroux heading to Berlin, four of the five top scorers have headed overseas during the lockout. Evgeni Malkin and Ilya Kovalchuk have signed with teams in the Russian-based KHL while Jason Spezza is in Switzerland. Only Steven Stamkos has yet to make overseas arrangements.

It must be so annoying for fans of the opposing teams. Not only did they pick up two NHL players - they got a super star and a first liner. Even for an NHL team this would be a huge boost, but for a DEL team this is insane. Even crazier is Simmonds and Stewart going down to play in the 2nd tier which has a similar, if not lower, talent level to the ECHL.

Yes, the ripple affect is felt throughout the hockey leagues.

I do not agree with NHL caliber players signing in these other leagues, I mean good on a team if they can land a Giroux/Briere combo for sure....but I don't like the idea of other players losing their jobs to the NHL players...Does not sit right with me at all.

I wish more NHLers would sign in Sweden (where I live). Even if they don't sign in my favorite team, it's still really fun to see the best players in the world live, and not just only on TV.

Claude Giroux has neck injury



Star center Claude Giroux of the Philadelphia Flyers is leaving his club in the German league to seek medical attention for a neck injury, his agent Pat Brisson told ESPN.com Tuesday morning.
Giroux suffered the injury in a game last Friday with Berlin. Giroux also underwent concussion tests in Germany over the weekend.
In a text message, Giroux said he'll be "fine."
Brisson said Giroux will visit with Dr. Ted Carrick in Atlanta next week. Carrick is the same doctor who has worked with the likes of Sidney Crosby and Jonathan Toews.
"We want to make sure we get the right diagnosis with the neck injury. It's a precaution," Brisson said. "We believe it's a minor injury. He felt better yesterday, but we just don't want to take any chances."
