One thing I want to point out is that, he didn't look like he had completely recovered from his injury in the DEL this season.

At playing at a sub-Giroux level, he was still PPG this year.

If he turns himself back on, he can be a 90-point player again, particularly with teams having another established center to key on.

Couturier and Schenn may be good, but they're not going to get the kind of defensive respect from opposing teams that Lecavalier will receive.

Teams keying on Giroux even slightly less will give him more freedom.
