from Rob Parent of the Daily Times, “
My belief is that he can be the best player on the ice every night,” Laviolette said of Giroux, who is tied with Briere for the team lead in goals with 12, and has 11 assists to go along with it. “He proves on a nightly basis that he can bring a little bit of everything. He’s physical, too. He can hit, he can make plays, he can score big goals, he can play in all situations. Like (Richards), he can kill (penalties), he can kill on a 5-on-3 situation, and on a 5-on-3 (power play) he could play forward.
“There are a lot of things; he can take a big faceoff, he can check the other team’s big players. Without question he can play all (forward) positions … he can even play on a point on the power play.”
Oh, did he say that?
What Giroux can’t do is walk on water, but then, as long as it’s cold enough, he can glide over it with the best of them. What he also has learned to do is highlight his skills with an appropriate measure of smarts.
