I am not comparing Giroux and crosby however I am comparing their shot. The early knock on crosby was that he didn't shoot, so he worked on his shot and now he uses it effectively. Observation would suggest that Giroux doesn't really have a strong shot, so he does recognize his bread and butter is his passing and relies on his strength. I think that he is so skilled but he is still so unpredictable, meaning he does use the shot when needed and that is a key to his game, basically pass first but shoot if there. Another point is that offensively he is a perimeter player, and that is not a knock, Claude is at his best when he carries the puck into the zone tight curls to the boards and then dishes, so his shot from the perimeter is not really high percentage or effective due to his shot type. I really think in the future he will get stronger and develop his shot to increase the effectiveness or selfishness of it.
