Max Pacioretty and the Search for a Superstar
 
Hey Habs fans,

Wrote a column on Pacioretty that was published yesterday. Probably not a ton of new information to you, but I took a look at both the qualitative and quantitative. Got some quotes from a few Habs bloggers, too.

Hope you enjoy:

It's gotta be the bison meat.

Slick Eller 07-17-2012 11:43 AM

IIRC He finished 4th in the NHL for ESG after Stamkos, Gaborik and someone else.

4th for ESG, thats uber.

Takashi 07-17-2012 11:57 AM

Go Patches !

FlyingKostitsyn 07-17-2012 12:25 PM

A few years from now him and Galchenyuk are going to be the driving force behind one of the NHL's best lines.

Still remember when people would've traded him for Frolov. :laugh:

That thread is pretty funny.

Patches for president :yo: hopefully he signs a long term contract next year

Myron Gaines* 07-17-2012 02:17 PM

Patches has the potential of becoming a star player, and if he consecutive seasons like last year, he will become one no doubt.

Beaker 07-17-2012 02:20 PM

Pacioretty is one of the few bright spots on our team. With the work ethic he has, the attitude, and the skill, I don't see how he won't hit 40 goals at least once during his tenure with us.

Teufelsdreck 07-17-2012 02:25 PM

He scored more goals last season than Guy Lafleur did in his first or second NHL season.However, I wouldn't be so rash as to extrapolate from that.

MTL-rules 07-17-2012 02:40 PM

I admit, I once included him in a trade proposal... but for a struggling Malkin... I don't regret it :sarcasm:

Rozz 07-17-2012 02:50 PM

this is hands down my favourite quote from that old thread about pac's for frovlov that was posted above :

"I was hoping for a 30 goal/60 point player out of Max, but it looks mor elike he's shaping up to become a 5 goal 4th liner. Its not just the lack of production, its his inability to do anything int he offensive zone. He can't find scoring areas and he doesn't have good finish. Really strikes me as somebody who is going to end up like Chad Kilger just because he doesn't have enough hockey sense to succeed in the nhl."

wow, he stared off with the right hopes .. but did this guy ever get it wrongin the end! .. thank god!

A.Frolov is a very talented player but how exactly are we going to afford him come off-season? Heck, we aren't even sure on how exactly we'll find the money to re-sign Plekanec, and given our situation in the middle, Plekanec is more important than Frolov.

I like Pacioretty a lot, too.
i like past me

Max could be a 40 goal scorer he missed many chances last year and still finished with 33 goals

With Galchenyuk and in a couple of year (he's only 23, let's not forget that) He could clearly becombe a perrenial 40 goals scorers.

And inversely Galchenyuk could be a .ppg player setting up Pacs and potting in a few of his own ;). I see lots of secondary assists in Subban's future!

If he continue shooting the puck at this rate, odds are he'll get at one point a lucky shot % streak and score 40+ goals in a season.

He's probably not going to have such a monster year at ES scoring though The two should balance each other out and keep him about equal rather than the PP carrying him higher. I'd say another 30 goal year is in the cards though and that's nothing to sneeze at.
