Exactly, from an outside perspective (I cheered for the Kings until the last round of the playoffs, even if I should hate them), I'd say that Giroux has a slight edge on Kopitar. The edge is strictly offensive potential though, Kopitar is miles ahead, defensively. However, Giroux is more marketable and seems more "superstar-ish" than Kopitar, from which much of his value is derived.
