I would love for Giroux to be widely comparable to Datsyuk in the long run. But as far as Datsyuk's production is concerned, do you think my point has validity? I mean with the depth of the Wings for nearly the whole time he's been there, it seems he hasn't gotten the amount of the points he's capable of because quite frankly, he hasn't needed to. Don't mean to like force my point on people, it's just something I feel has an impact on not just Giroux himself, but the overall depth impacts the stats of most of the Flyers. Not that it's a bad thing, but I just don't see a Flyer putting up the points that a star of similar skill level would put up for a less offensively deep team.

Giroux is a Playmaker and Dangler,
Very true. I'd say it's also a testament to his positioning and overall hockey sense as well.
