Invisible is a stretch.

However, Pacioretty can and has played better in the past. He's too much of a perimeter player this year. He needs to be more physically engaged and go towards the net like he used to. He still produces because he's a legit first-line player, but he could be producing so much more if he goes back to the things he was doing well last year.

I'm not sure why you're talking about Eller here. This place reminds me of a bunch of Twilight fangirls: ZOMG ARE U ON TEAM ELLER OR TEAM DESHARNAIS????

If Pacioretty were on Eller's line with the same stats, of course the comments would be different. Yes, it would be a superb year to finish with 39 points despite playing very little PP time and having very few offensive starts compared to his usual centerman.
