My point is, Giroux doesn't have (at this time) the innate defensive skill that great defensive forwards show. On top of that, he lacks the size or reach to compensate accordingly.

It isn't necessary to be big to be good defensively, but if you aren't naturally good on defense (like Giroux at this time) then bigger size and reach help. Giroux lacks that.
