"Behind Enemy Lines" Canadiens Magazine interviews Claude Giroux about his former teammate, Danny Brière

  • CM: You were 20 years old when you joined the Flyers and Daniel was a 30-year-old vet. Did you two hit it off from the start?
  • CG: It didn’t take long for us to click. We bonded right away. I had just arrived in the league and he was able to help me a lot both and off the ice. I’d say he helped me even more away from the rink. It’s so important to be able to count on a veteran presence like him when you break into the NHL. Despite the age difference, we became good friends and we spent a lot of time together.
  • CM: Do you call him Daniel or Danny?
  • CG: I call him “Sneaky”! (laughs) It’s a nickname we came up with for him.
  • CM: Not long after joining the Flyers, you moved in with Daniel. Was it his idea?
  • CG: We talked about it a little bit beforehand and we thought it was a good idea for me to live with him. It definitely helped strengthen our relationship even further. The other guys made a few jokes about it and called him my dad. They said he was a little bit like my father.
  • CM: Has he ever had you play the role of babysitter with his kids?
  • CG: (laughs) He brought his kids to a few practices, but he never asked me to be their babysitter at home.
  • CM: Was he a tough landlord?
  • CG: (laughs) No, no. We were both pretty relaxed. We weren’t good cooks, so we often went out to eat at restaurants.
  • CM: Between you and Daniel, who handles themselves better in the kitchen?
  • CG: It’s definitely me. Dan isn’t really in his element in a kitchen! The only things he knows how to make are cereal and toast!
  • CM: Since you lived with him as a rookie, did he protect you from the other veterans who wanted to make your life difficult?
  • CG: (laughs) The veterans weren’t that bad with me and my initiation went well. Dan was always good to me.
  • CM: Daniel might never have been captain of the Flyers, but he was for a long time in Buffalo. Has he ever given you advice on the subject of sporting the “C”?
  • CG: Without a doubt, with his experience of being a captain he was able to help me in my new role. Dan was the ideal veteran to have by my side when I became captain of the Flyers.
  • CM: What did you guys do when you hung out together away from the rink?
  • CG: Daniel and I have pretty much the same interests. We both love hockey, but we also like similar sports like golf and baseball. During the hockey season, we didn’t have a lot of free time, but sometimes we went to see the Phillies. We had a lot of fun together.
  • CM: Who’s the better dresser between the two of you?
  • CG: He’s got more of an “old school” sense of style, but I’m no better than him. I don’t really overthink it when it comes to deciding what to wear.
