But let's not pretend that he is anything but barely adequate defensively.
Who cares? Giroux is being paid not to be a defensive stalwart. He's being paid to put the puck in the net and make the players around him better. He's done that and has done that in spades.
Richards is gone. Get over it. He's not coming back. Besides, if you really want someone on this team to be a Richards clone, look no further than the 19 year old who did something Richards could never do on his best day - shut down Malkin and make it look easy.
I loved Richards when he was here, but it's time to move on.
