Who would have thought Steve Yzerman would win a Selke when he was 23. With Giroux' work ethic and mind, he is capable of shutting people down. IMO - he has been weak defensively this year for two reasons:
1. He is giving up plenty of turnovers with blind passes, forcing things
2. He is counted on to produce offensively first. Defense second.
I do believe Giroux has Selke ability. Giroux is much better on D then most of the elite offensive players in the league. He is a very special player.
