It's entirely possible. Not many players notch back to back 90+ seasons.

I could see Giroux dropping to about 80 points next season by no fault of his own.

This is not the reason why, however. Jagr was completely ineffective the second half of last season, and Briere, Voracek and possibly even Schenn could quite possibly be more effective in that spot.

EDIT: And also, think about what you're saying. Defenders are gonna leave Voracek or Briere open to "target Giroux more"? The reason why Giroux is so effective is that he can make such good use of his linemates...
