Giroux AINEC, mainly due to the length of Kovalchuk's contract.

Lower cap hit, younger, RFA after contract, better 2-way game. Kovalchuk has only goal scoring over him. Both are elite players though. If I had a 24 yr old Kovy, I'd probably choose him.

I also believe with the addition of Nash, Giroux fills a bigger whole in the the superstar center. Richards is the perfect 2nd line center and Stepan 3rd line center while Boyle pivots the 4th line.

With Kovalchuk, you have a huge logjam on the wings.
