Absolutely agree, overlords.
One thing he needs to work on now is his top speed. He has some good acceleration going, but his top speed is a notch below Cole's. But you're right, lately he's been lowering the shoulder, protecting the puck with his body and driving to the net. I noticed he did it once or twice during the Leafs game on Saturday. He's also becoming a stronger player along the boards, winning a lot more battles than he did at the start of the season.
Cole's leadership on and off the ice over the next year or two is really going to shape Pacioretty into a 30+ goal scorer for the Habs.
