Having A pure shooter with Giroux out there wouldn't have changed a single thing. There weren't any situations where I thought "damn, if only we had (insert sniper here)". Giroux, like the whole team, provided very little on offence for the entire game. Having a Stamkos or a Ryan wouldn't haven't changed that, at least from the Giroux standpoint.
1 G, 1 A and neither of those points were fluky.

I'm curious, what is your expectation for enough offensive output? 3 points? Two goals?

There's a reason a forward roster contains 12 players and not just 1. This is why I don't get mad at Giroux if he gets pissed off after a game because there are people who will blame him regardless of circumstances or what he's doing literally just because he's the Captain and biggest name on the team.

EDIT: And having Stamkos instead of Raffl wouldn't have meant a chance at more production this game or over the course of the season? My God.
