Patches has an elite shot. One of the best in the league but there are aspects of his game that are not elite and those aspects are overlooked quite often. On a Stanley Cup contender Patches is a second line winger not a first liner.

To expect Patches to be more than a 30/30 player is extremely unrealistic.
Oh come on, that's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. He had 33 in 79 in 2011-12 so it's possible he could've scored 2 in his last 3 games. This year he has 32 in only 65 games, are you saying that it really matters to you whether he scores 3 in the 8 games that we have left?

Pacioretty is top 10 in goals over the past 3 years and saying he's not a first liner on a Cup contender is just straight up wrong and embarrassing
