Max was mostly known as a playmaker in college so of course he can pass. He's just playing with a pure passer in a team struggling to score goals he'll be focusing on that.

I have found him to be uninterested and lost. Injuries?Media?Maire? Coach?Team in general? He's a gifted scorer, that we know. He's got 17 this year and it's like he's not trying for the most part.

This team is like watching a soap and it's not getting any better as the story unfolds.
The GM for the Olympic team has a different perception, Otto. Besides, as others have suggested, it would help Pacioretty's assist record if Desharnais were capable of scoring as many goals as Cole had been at one time (but no longer can). Also, I'd take Pacioretty's injuries into consideration. Finally, I'm unable to reconcile what you say about his trying and his being uninterested and lost.

Well he going to the Olympic and will play with other guys way more talented at closing than DD. If Max start racking in the assists we have a good idea where the problem lies. Don't get me wrong I think DD has qualities of his own but he a better setup guy than closer.

Gally is the 3rd wheel on the Pac-Harnais Bromance

Bring back the EGG line and put Bournival or Bourque on DD's RW

Without Pacioretty, Desharnais would have no assists To go with his lack of goals. Desharnais couldn't score on a soccer net!

Or Prust or Moen can play with 67-51. It is not like the third guy ever produces on that line anyway....

Desharnais only feeds Pacioretty and Pacioretty only gives the puck to DD in order to get into a better position to receive a return-pass. DD won't shott and Gallagher is hardly ever given the puck to score, it's no wonder Pacioretty has no assists.

If Gallagher is just going to act as a puck-chaser/puck-receiver and a net presence, may as well put Bournival or Prust on the RW and put Gallagher back with Eller and Galchenyuk to give the team a second scoring line. It's not like anyone ever passes him the puck anyway.

And Paches would have 5 goals total.

DD and Max are their biggest biggest friends and enemies in a way.

You honestly think Pacioretty can only work with DD and not Plekanec or Eller or Galchenyuk or Briere?

Pacioretty worked with Scott Gomez. He doesn't strictly need DD at all. It's a myth that he must be with DD because everyone wants to forget about Gomez.

Who knows, really? He doesn't have much chemistry with Plek.

Max actually is a decent passer. He just needs someone he can trust on his line. Max seems to rely a lot on trust. Always stays beside DD and wants to play with him. If you can find a Winger that can score and have good chemistry with Max, he'll be racking numbers like his season with Cole & DD on a frequent basis.

It's not like he's been ever paired with Plekanec for a long stretch of games. The only stretch I can think of is in 09-10 where he played on a line with Plekanec and Kostitsyn for like 3 games had four points.

Look at his play with out the puck, mostly from the defensive zone.
Also, I don't dislike Patch and I riding him a bit here cause I want more game in game out.
Now has far as injuries goes, I just think he's a bit exitant fearing getting hurt. That where the lost feeling comes in, is he adjusting his game to better protect himself?

Max is saving the best for the playoff's and nobody's going to bi@tch if he scores 40 goals and 4 assists. At least I won't.

How he has so little assists is simple. DD rarely shoots, so he rarely scores. The chances of one of Max's passes being the one where DD will shoot and score are slim.

The other winger, whomever that will be, never gets the puck from DD, and Max is told to shoot on every occasion.

(funny enough, in the game against the preds, I was saying to my brother in law that I would love to play against DD because he is so predictable, he always looks for the pass and never shoots. Just as I finish saying that....he shoots and wins the game in overtime! I laughed my @ss off there. I still maintain, he is the easiest player to defend against, small and uni-dimensional- pass only.)

When Galchenyuk can prove that he can win at least 40% of the faceoff he is involved in, we can start talking about him at center. Until then, no, just no.

Last year, when Pacioretty had 15 goals and 24 assists, people were complaining about his lack of goals. Now that's he is on pace to have the best goal scoring season for a Hab in 20 years, people are complaining about his lack of assists?

Only 10 players have more goals than Patches in the last 3 years. Leave the guy alone and let him do best what he does best... score goals.

I'm not complaining about his lack of assists. I'm dumbfounded how a guy who puts that much rubber on net doesn't have more assists merely from rebounds and tips. Gallagher was great last year at driving the net.

Nice to see Patches tally 2 of each tonight. He's one of my favorite players.

It's kind of hard to work on improving this without game experience. This is just one skill that comes with time. Look at any young prospect in their first couple years and the face off percentage is brutal, even Crosby was horrible.

Patches could have had 5 assists tonight. DD missed several chances(or tried to pass when he needed to shoot) and got robbed on one.

He doesn't rely on others to put goals up on the board, that's why.

It's unfortunate. He's proven to be a dangler in the SO but just missed the mark a few times tonight. 1 goal game and he's got a good chance, he's got to finish it.

Actually, the line is centered around Max getting a lot of shooting opportunities. I have no issue with it because he can finish.
