To be honest, I would put Giroux into the second line, but I'm sure he could be on the same power-play unit with Crosby and Stamkos.
Canada has had many instances of players coexisting in spite of NHL issues. I doubt that the Bruins and Canadiens got along in 1976, and we know that the Oilers and Islanders didn't get along in 1984, but they still came together and won. I agree with your assessment though, just put Crosby and Giroux on different lines. Even if they have to play together, it's not like they're going to refuse to pass to each other or something.
