Seriously? This is probably the fifth Giroux/Tavares thread this summer.

Giroux is better now. Tavares will likely surpass him as soon as this season.

This might literally be the 10th time this poll has been made since the season ended. Tavares usually wins to poll and then everyone who posts comes in to say he's not at Giroux's level JUST YET. And then after that it turns into a pissing match.

Tie as of last season. Tavares from here on out.

Can we just skip to the part where Flyers fans say that Tavares hasn't proven to be better than Giroux, while Isles fans insist that you need to watch Tavares play and that he would have way more points with better linemates?

if the isles kept PA parenteau this past season instead of going out and signing brad boyes, tavares would have lead the league in goals and probably points too, omg boyes was so bad

Tavares has done absolutely nothing to surpass Giroux as of right now. Giroux had a "down year" last season and still had more points than JT. He's older and JT will be better in a few seasons, but right now there is no reason to pick Tavares, if we're talking about one season.

Giroux and it's really not close. In future Tavares has potential to be better than him, right now he isn't.

Tavares scored more than twice as many goals playing with Brad Boyes and Matt Moulson.

Seriously, he was on pace for almost 50 goals last year. And I'd take a 50-goal PPG player over a 22-goal PPG player any day of the week.
