Offense is the most important thing for a #1 center, and I think "horrible" is an overdramatic assessment of Giroux's defense. He's not noteworthy on defense one way or the other, and he's certainly not the second coming of Daniel Briere. He's no worse than Malkin or Sedin or Stamkos and the kind of elite centermen who are known for their scoring and not their checking.
