You're just like WPG fans who think hitting alone makes him that much more valuable...

reality : they're both top 6 players, the only reason they're on the top 6 is because they put up points on the board. Both do it at more or less the same pace...
Thing is, hitting and chippiness as Overlords put it, do make him that much better. All things equal, I take the player who forechecks and hits all game long. He brings an edge that only a couple teams have on their top lines.

Really though, all things are not equal as in my mind Kane is simply a better hockey player than Pacioretty. More skill, more vision, more fire. I love Pacioretty and he is a good player, but I'd trade him for Kane in a second.
