Then there's this season where he had a chance to show what he is without Pacioretty which amounted to nothing. I don't think he's shown he can bring anything if Pacioretty gets injured/suspended/traded especially with the current powerplay setup which has nothing in terms of downlow play. On the flip side, 10/11 and Pacioretty's production without Desharnais aside, I'm not convinced Pacioretty would have success without his BFF Desharnais on his line either. He's played probably 200+ games with Desharnais since the AHL and seems to not try as hard if they are in the lineup but separate lines. To me this is more of a scary thought since he is the long term franchise LW.
