Kane forsure and that's saying something cause Claude has dangles too. Kane's hands are just so fast. It's ridiculous.

Man, real tough one. Kane's hands are so quick, def has an advantage there. I think Giroux has better moves however. Probably would have to go with Kane since you are asking for the best hands.

Two of the best in the league right there. Crazy how they could of been on the same team if it weren't for the lottery.

What exactly is meant by hands? Finish, or stick-handling? Or both?

I've certainly heard the term used to describe both.

Giroux is possibly my favorite player outside LA, but kane hands are just dirty.

Giroux has better hands in tight spaces I'd say and is more effective when playing through traffic right by the net. He's probably not as good in terms of deking or showing off his skill if we were to record a youtube vid (Perron/Tavares/Datsyuk are actually the three that stick out for me when it comes to that).

Giroux can probably be called a better puck handler simply because he's stronger on his skates and can battle through a bit. I'm not trying to paint a picture of Kane as some skinny push-around but he's not as good in that department of fighting through as Giroux.

You're explaining puck posessions ability/ability to power through defenders. This whole debate is just about who has better hands or higher hand skills with the puck or in other words puckhandling ability, not strength on the puck. If it was strength on the puck we could look at Malkin and company, but that's a whole nother discussion. lol
