I like Giroux, and think he's going to have a great career in the NHL... but goal-scoring ability like what Carter has is a really hard to find commodity in the NHL, which people seem to overlook with amazing consistency.

On top of that, Giroux has yet to produce anywhere near the totals Carter has... so it's kind of remarkable that he's being held up as a definitively more productive offensive player.
