Not surprising that some players are being asked to do more than they're quite ready or capable of. Giroux is young and probably falls in this category. Hence his struggles.
You simply cant take two top 6 forwards out in one shot, fail to acquire any top 6'ers to replace them.. and expect some forwards not to struggle.
You forget that we've got Giroux, JVR and Briere in to replace them, right?
