Apples to Apples.....Carters first two years in the NHL: 23-19-42pts ; 14-23-37pts(62 games) / Giroux : 9-18-27pts(42 games) ; 16-31-47pts..........and as far as the skating, Carter is a long stride skater able to cover more ice like in lanes on the wing where he would be best suited, Giroux has more jump and is able to cover more area in a shorter period of time in tight areas, he is shifty.....advantage Giroux.
