Joe Pavelski - 1.150
Patrick Marleau - 1.040
Joe Thornton - .977
Daniel Winnik - .907

Joe Pavelski saw the top competition every night. When the other teams best players were on the ice, the Sharks put Joe Pavelski on the ice. He wasn't sheltered in the slightest.

Whatever details you feel like bickering about, the only thing that matters is value. The value of Joe Pavelski is greater than that of Rick Nash if for no other reason than their contracts. Rick Nash is not $3.8m > Joe Pavelski, not even close.
Before getting too far ahead of ourselves let's clarify that Corsi is a measure of the shot differential when a player is on the ice. Let's say Thornton played against a teams shutdown line and defense pair. You'd expect his QoC to be lower, based on the fact that those shutdown lines tend to not generate much offense themselves.
