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.
We've already been punished for that contract don't you worry. We haven't even forfeited the first round pick yet either.
