I seem to remember a Giroux vs Jordan Staal thread a couple summers ago where this was the case for the Giroux backers (myself included). Giroux compares favorably to guys like Datsyuk and Forsberg in a number of respects.

While I love Kesler's game he seems to me like the type of player who might lose some impact if he were to asked to be the #1 center on his team. Not saying he couldn't handle it and handle it well, just that I think he wouldn't be quite the x-factor he is in his current situation. Giroux seems like he has all the tools to be a upper echelon top line center on a good team.
