Kopitar > Giroux, IMO.

He's a great player, but he's never even scored 30 goals. Elite guys come into the league and make an immediate impact. As good as he is, Giroux couldn't do that. His numbers have only jumped handily since the Flyers have essentially tossed defense out the window. Anze has put up great numbers in a defense-first system.

And Kopitar can take games over by himself, we've seen him do it before.
