I don't really believe the "Pacioretty would be a 50-60 goal scorer with an elite centre" stuff. I think 40-45 might be more realistic. Desharnais is already an excellent passer who looks to give it to Patches every single time they're on the ice together.

However, among the elite goal scorers of the league (Stamkos, Crosby, Ovechkin, Perry, Kessel) the one Pacioretty most resembles to me is Perry. Perry was 26 when he jumped from 27 goals to 50 goals. Pacioretty is 25 now. Obviously Perry plays with Getzlaf, which helps, but a lot of his goal scoring is his own doing too. It'll be interesting to see if Pacioretty has another level to go to like Perry did.
