He doesn't go to the net hard and is really a perimeter player right now. That has absolutely zero to do with Hartnell or Voracek.
You have to be referring to those three either in the past tense or the present tense. Either way it doesn't make sense.

Briere was a great scorer for a while and even when that took a downturn he was still a monster performer in the playoffs for us. If Giroux were as good as Briere was in his prime at scoring I'd be fine with that. If you're comparing him to Briere in the present that just makes zero sense.

Cammalleri and Ribeiro also used to be great players who put up great totals. He's also nowhere near the level of Cammalleri in the present.
