3 years ago was a different animal as far as RFAs went. Still really in the shadow of the Vanek offer sheet then.

I'll also note that Jeff Carter has one of the rarest of abilities in the NHL: raw goal scoring ability. Giroux is going to get points -- wouldn't be shocked to see him get more points than Carter on a regular basis -- but Carter will almost certainly pot more goals than Giroux. Similar to the thing between Carter and Richards.
