Its not outrageous at all. However, you can't really look back on what Kovalchuk did 10 years ago. He's a different player on a different team. He's had two full seasons with you guys and has 143 points in 158 games. Meanwhile, Giroux has 169 points in 159 games over the same time period. The difference is certainly not earth shattering, but recent history certainly gives the edge to Giroux. Overall playoff records go in Giroux's favor too with 52 points in 46 games, while Kovy has 13 points in 16 games. I'm not saying that Giroux is miles ahead of Kovy, because he isn't. However, you can certainly make the case that he is currently better than him based on recent history. Given the fact that Kovy is currently hurt, while Giroux is currently playing at the best level of his career, it would be an enormous reach to say that Kovy is the better player in terms of how it will relate to this upcoming series.
Anything can happen though...
