I know what you were referencing, but you still used Giroux's name. I, for one, believe that consistency is a pretty important factor when players are ranked. I am sure that Carter was a top 10 forward going into last season after finishing 2nd in scoring, for instance, and where would he be now? Low 40s I would assume. As of right now, Giroux's body of work does not compare to Richard's body of work, simple as that. (not that this is an indictment of Giroux, he simply has not had the same time in the league as Richards)
