    What are some of their similarities? How about differences? Which player do you like moving forward? Thanks.

    Brassard shoots left, Giroux shoots right. Brassard has a better shot and better vision...Giroux is more creative, Brassard is faster..

    They arent very similar.

    Its like comparing Briere with Tanaguay or Gagne.

    Brassard is much better than Giroux and they are different kind of players

    Give it some time, Giroux just came out of nowhere, he might have a few tricks up his sleeve.

    Stats are for people who dont know what they are talking about.

    Also, that was before the crackdown was in order...extra 3-4 PP's a game add up.

    never claimed I did, I was pointing out something, and suggesting maybe ask this same question next season.

    But stats dont really tell the whole picture...especially in the CHL.

    Brassard is less than 4 months older than Giroux. It's nowhere near a year difference as you suggest and they are closer to being the same age than they are to be year apart by a pretty fair margin. Comparing their 2005-06 seasons is a much fairer comparison, in which case even in a pure stat comparison, Brassard wins pretty handily.

    Pretty impressive considering he's billed primarily as a playmaker.

    Giroux's learning curve is the thing that i'm most impressed with. He goes from undrafted in the Q, to star Q player, first round pick, and now he's scoring nearly 1.5 GPG and leading the Q in scoring. I was actually looking forward to comparing him with Brassard this season so I hope he gets healthy and we can compare what they can do.

    Can someone give me an idea of the caliber of players around these two? I know the Q is extremely high scoring, but I don't see many big name prospects on the top of the Q scoring list.

    I always liked him a lot... I really wanted the habs to draft him, I even picked him for the habs in a mock draft with Duff88. Giroux is a very skilled player with a good work ethic. IMO, he's going to be a good player in the NHL.
