He also has far more ES goals than any forward on this team per a minute played. He draws more penalties than almost everybody on this team. And when he is playing on a scoring line he creates chances for other people.

Yeah, and by the way, he is the only guy who scored in the last couple of shootouts. Giroux missed twice. Brieer missed twice...
Oh get over it already. There's a reason why you're the very small minority here.

It isn't how many giveaways he has, it's the nature of them. Every time he attempts to dangle into the zone and fails (which is about 95% of the time), he leaves us open for an odd-man rush.

There's no denying he has skill. He has to pick his battles better. Both him and Giroux are guilty of the failed through-the-legs no look passes.

There's a reason why he is on the 4th line.
