If Giroux stops producing, a similar result will occur.

Then again, Carter has been this teams best even strength forward the last few years...
Giroux does not have to score goals to produce, he has the ability to spread the ice with his ability to pass the puck. He can create an advantage by his puckhandling ability that Carter does not have. Defense cannot attack him with the puck, they will stay a stick length away and use the stick to block the lanes. With Carter the defense attacks and closes the space because they do not have to worry as much about him beating anyone one on one or passing to the open space and creating a mismatch in that open area or a pass to the point for a shot.
