Still nowhere near Richards, but I think he's gotten fairly responsible, except when he stickhandles through trouble spots, as you said.
I'm not saying he isn't responsible... but being responsible is only half the battle. Carter was responsible when he first got into the league, but was still atrocious defensively. Giroux is probably better than Carter when he first got up, but unfortunately he is never going to have the size to really help him on the defensive side of the puck (and uses that 4 inch stick to boot).
