Giroux is one of the best PP players in the league, and he's probably one of the most creative and skilled offensive players in the league. Jakub Voracek and possibly Matt Read are the only other players on this team that has been consistant offensively.

Giroux had 38 PP points last season. Something like 40% of his production. To be honest, I don't have any issues with Giroux's play this year other than he's not producing at the rate he could be, possibly because he's also being relied on defensively. Schenn and Couturier are sophomore slumping and Hartnell and Briere have both missed time and really been awful. That, coupled with an inept defense, is the recipe for Claude Giroux to have a rough season as he's already in a situation where he needs to be elite but he has NO support other than Voracek, Timonen and a few others.
