It helped that Giroux was on an effective line with Carter though. Briere was not a good second line player. He was the exact opposite of that, really. Schenn did have to pull more of a load than Giroux did. It's not really an easy comparison to make because their comparative situations were quite different.
Most of Schenn points came this year when he was playing with Voracek. When Voracek was taken off his line his production dipped.

While Giroux did get to play alongside Carter that year his other most frequent linemate was that offensive dynamo known as Darrell Powe.

Briere = Powe IMO.
