It's certainly possible he will take another step forward this year, but at this point, he's actually looked a step or two slow to me and he's generated far less scoring chances so far than he did last year IMO.

I think it's simply a case of lockout legs and a lack of chemistry w/ his linemates, but nonetheless, I don't see where you're coming from with the "he looks on a different planet" thing. Giroux has probably looked like our best player thus far, but there are plenty of players league wide who are on better early season form (Vanek for example, Jagr, Malkin, etc.). I'm not saying those guys are better players than Giroux, but they're in better early season form at this point.
