I think he's going to follow a similar path that Anisimov did.

PAP probably can be a "legit" NHL'er. Guys that he gets grouped with like Jason Krog; they all had their chances. PAP has had less than 20 games in the NHL if i'm not mistaken.
Grachev over PAP any day of the week. Ready or not, he has talent PAP wished he had.

If PAP isn't scoring he isn't doing much else. I don't think he will ever be a consistent scorer at the NHL level.
