Giroux is 5 years younger and scored 10 more points than Kovalchuk... I could see this being a debate for one season, but I don't see the argument for Kovalchuk at all if we're talking about going forward. Unless I guess you take into account that Giroux could escape via free agency (even though he'll probably get a mega contract from Philly as a RFA) whereas Kovalchuk is locked down until he has grandkids. Even so, I'm not sure Kovalchuk's contract acts value, especially considering the new CBA will probably punish contracts like that.
