It's tough for this season but if you're talking future, Giroux

Slow start for Giroux but he is the better player.

Yeah well Giroux absolutely wasn't the 3rd best player. Point totals don't indicate who the best players are.

Zetterberg is just head and shoulders better defensively than Giroux... even if you consider Giroux better offensively (which he so obviously isn't this season), the difference defensively more than makes up the difference.

Can't believe Zetterberg is winning this.

Two seasons ago most people would have said Zetterberg hands down.

Giroux has ONE good year and goes from a top 20-30 player in most people's eyes to top 5?

Common, as much as some people want to believe he is in a slump now the reality is this is probably what fans should expect out of him, last season he just over-achieved.

And, if we're going to judge players on based on relatively short term performances then Zetterberg's 08' and 09' playoffs >> Giroux's 11'/12' season.

It's Z by a larger margin than most may think IMO, but of course that's probably just my bias speaking.

Claude Giroux was arguably the 2nd best player in the league last year, without a doubt 3rd at worse.

With that logic there's something wrong if Perry isn't continually scoring 50 goals a season. Fluke seasons happen.

Giroux for the future but Z for this season without a doubt. Easy to see who is the better captain early on too.

Ah yes, Giroux's 76 pt season (4 less than Zetterberg that season) doesn't constitute a "good season".

Zetterberg until G losses the C. Flyers captain curse in full effect.

What's so surprising? We are talking about this year and next and this year Z is blowing Giroux out of the water.

Anything past two years prob goes to Giroux favor.

Yeah can/t believe Zetterberg has any votes in a poll asking who you would take this season and next. Zetterberg this season has 20 points in 15 games and Giroux has 10 points in 16 games.
