Honestly the only thing Giroux does better than Datsyuk is skate. And Datsyuk isn't exactly a slouch himself.

Take Claude Giroux, give him a harder, more accurate shot with a quicker release. Then give him the forearms of Thor and the most effective defensive stick work I've ever seen in the NHL (by a forward or defensemen). Then let him get ten years more experience in the game. Now you have Datsyuk. Giroux is more on the level of Datsyuk Ultra, like that lame Michelob with 4 calories. Sure you could compare it to a regular beer, and it's a valid comparison I guess, but it's still not nearly as good.
