I don't really agree with the thought on HF that a center should get automatically more credit than a winger. I know center is supposed to be a tougher position.
But in today's game any top 6 forward, center or winger must provide average defence at minimum, the gap between a center and a winger regarding their 3 zone presence is constantly getting closer.
That being said, Giroux being younger and cheaper is an obvious choice, but I assure anyone who doesn't watch the Devils playing that when a winger like Kovalchuk is on his game, he might a pure domination, controlling the flow and pace of the game as much as any über-center in the league.
