It's a weak point for one very obvious reason: if he was producing better he would have been earning more minutes.
Even then. The only forwards that got more minutes at 5 on 5 than Giroux were Richards, Carter, Gagne, Briere, and Hartnell (in short, top 6 minutes). Same with the PP, though Giroux jumped over Hartnell.
I mean, people really seem to forget that Giroux was a complete non-factor for almost the entire second half of the season.
