Pacioretty or Lucic?

Who is better?
Does 3 years down the road change your opinion?

It depends...

If I want a player with more scoring ability, I go Pacioretty.

If I want more grit, I go with Lucic.

Overall, I go with Pacioretty. He has just begun to scratch the surface of what he is capable of.

Very good poll, now is an old school PFW, big, not that fast, very tough, and plays a really rough game. Patches seems like the new bread of PFW, skill, speed, not as physical.

In terms of skills, I think Patches has a lot more raw skill, skating, shot, passing, and defensive, but Lucic seems to be more effective.

I guess I'd say tie, but the edge goes to Lucic because he has done more so far in their career.

I'd take Milan Lucic in a Jack Edward's hearbeat.

I prefer old-school PFs. They're a LOT harder to find.

I'm probably biased (OK I'm definitely biased) but I'll agree with this post here. Pacioretty is a heck of a player though, don't get me wrong. It's sort of an apples to oranges type comparison.

Pacioretty will put up more points but Lucic makes up for that with a top-notch hitting and intimidation game. I'll give the edge to Lucic

As for 3 years from now, who knows? I'll say Pacioretty based on nothing but a gut feeling and homerism

I think Paccioretty is a more talented player, and probably has the higher ceiling.

However, Lucic brings much more toughness to a team.

I guess they both fit their team really well. I don't see the Habs trading Pac for Lucic, nor do I see the Bruins trading Lucic for Pac at this point in time.

If I had to pick someone, I'd take Paccioretty, because I'm a Habs fan

But nonetheless, even though they are both considered like ''Power Forwards'', their respective styles are extremely different.

Have to go with Pacioretty because I wouldn't want Lucic on my team in a million years. So yeah, Pacioretty.

Pac hasn't played a full year in the NHL yet. He's still developing Lucic is not as much.

Patches in the future, Lucic nowish. I still would take Patches (I prefer speed and skill to toughness and grit), but I understand why Lucic is likely better at what he does.

Ah, the old "Milan Lucic is a no talent, slow footed grinder" myth persists...

Lucic is ~6 months older than patches

Max is very skilled. But I wouldn't want someone that hides behind refs on my team.

It's extremely rare to find someone with the combination skill set Lucic has, don't underestimate how vital big hits and intimidation is to winning a championship

Lucic is also on a 39 goal pace, with no empty netters yet

The only place Pacioretty is better than Lucic is in being able to take a hit.
I give him that....that boy got heart.

Max Pacioretty for me, he's a much better skater and I think he can be a 35-40 goal scorer while Lucic will probably just be a 25-30 goal man. Both great players though.

As for having to pick between the two, if they have similar yearly goal totals I'll take Lucic for the intimidation and physicality.

If Pax can consistently score 10 goals a season more than Lucic I'd take Pacioretty.

Lucic@ 30-35 goals> Pac @ 30-35 goals

Pac @ 35-40 goals> Lucic @ 25-30.

Basically everyone who hates Boston will pick max and everyone who hates Montreal will pick Lucic. Gotta love HF.

Dissapointed with you drebs, I always saw you as a rational hab fan, but your post doesn't make any sense and isnt relevant. Max hides behind refs, he does it all the time, what does that have to do with me and whether or not I am personally "tough"?

I like Lucic game but this was not his best performance.
Neely would never do something like that.

Its just as silly as saying that I would never take Lucic on my team cause he's a "dirty" player.

Pac's is a hell of a player, and its fair that you wouldn't want him on your team over Lucic, but to say that you wouldn't want him on your team because he "hides behind the refs" is stupid. Sorry but it is.

I think the question is about hockey, not the cheap stuff Boston does after EVERY whistle...
