Two seasons. Pacioretty was playing at an elite level in 2010-11, same basis as I have for Subban essentially. The difference he made for the team and his linemates during his truncated season was massive. Habs were an elite team when he was with them that year.

Mid-season Pacioretty gets called up from the AHL and plays like a first line LW, mid-season Subban gets pulled up from the 3rd pairing and plays like a number one defenseman.
