Might want to scale back the expectations on this guy... a guy drafted in 2007, the worst draft since 1999.
About the only thing I agreed with was that the Habs probably wouldn't trade both guys for Kessel However, that's more due to already having smaller guys like Gionta, Cammy, Plekanec, etc. Subban and Pax both fill a pretty serious need on the Habs now and in the future if they ever pan out.

The expectations of those players though are a little extreme. Probably better off hoping Pax turns into a 20-25 goal scorer in the NHL, anything above that is a massive bonus. Can't see the guy ever being top 5 or 6 in the league in goal scoring though lol
