I think it's very fair especially given that all the whiners in 2007 had never seen Pacioretty play but still complained that we took him over Perron. Perron is soft as butter and has been in coaches doghouses at all levels. I doubt he'd have over 40 points on this Habs team at this point in the season. Patches is also a much better skater and has more dimensions to his game along with better attitude and work ethic. Patches was the better pick. I'd bet this would be unanimous among all 30 NHL GMs.
