It only takes 60 seconds to look up.

Pacioretty scored 33 goals in 79 games last year playing easy minutes against a (weak) Corsi Rel Qoc = +0.068, yes.

He also scored 14 goals in 37 games the year before that (identical production within the margin of error), playing with Gomez and Gionta against substantially more difficult opposition, Corsi Rel Qoc = +0.482. That proves Pacioretty doesn't need easy minutes to produce at a high level.

You know what Desharnais' Corsi Rel QoC was in 2010-2011? -0.526. It was +0.007 in 2011-2012, also very weak. Compare that to legitimate 1st line centers around the NHL like Joe Thornton (+1.497) and Ryan Getzlaf (+0.843).
