As bad as this season has been from a win/loss perspective, it's been a joy to watch his line.
Paciorettys type of scoring can dry up very easily. Blake had a 40 goal season and it was due to a huge amount of shooting. Pacioretty is doing something similar and I hope Cole can develop him into a player more willing to drive the net.

Coles skillset is dangerous and will never be not dangerous. He is a prototypical power forward which is rare and hard to teach. I love Pacioretty don't get me wrong but with the way he plays his size doesn't even matter because he doesn't use it, he might aswell be Ryder/Cammalleri if he is just going to shoot all day.
