Mcphee skated relatively well, and always finished his checks. If Pacioretty acquires Mcphee's mean streak and doesn't try to do too much, we have identical twins.

The biggest differences right now are that patches has more finesse to his game (although not seen at the nhl level), and isnt as mean.
Strange, I see very little similarities in their style of play.
