Plekanec is our best forward overall. No question about it. Probably why he's still getting the most ice time among forwards too btw.
I guess it depends on your preference because they are very close. As a person who values offense more than defense, I would give the advantage to Pacioretty. Without Patches, we don't score any goals and we're shut out vs Phoenix. As for his linemates, Pacioretty plays with DD so it's really unfair to say one has better linemates than the other one.
Pacioretty is close to a PPG forward, no one comes close to that on the team at the moment.
