He needs someone who's a big body, can win the puck, find open space and shoot very well. We don't have anyone that even remotely fits that description, so Girouxs talent is essentially being wasted.

So who do we blame this on?

Well, Bobby Ryan naturally.
Exactly, a grinder who can't score up close anymore and a playmaker who can't make plays anymore are not the wingers you put with an franchise #1 center. You need someone to shoot the damn puck.
