Our best scoring forward Patches can't be a set up man he is flat out poor at it but no one cares. They compliment each other very well.
Unlike Desharnais, Pacioretty isn't one dimensional enough to always look to pass. He can and has plenty of times setup players for goals/scoring chances.

Here's a funny stat from last 2 seasons:

First Assists 5 on 5

Player A
11/12: 15
12/13: 7

Player B
11/12: 14
12/13: 9

One is the skilled Desharnais the other is the 'can't be a set up man' Pacioretty.
