Paajarvi is a winger.

He put up 15 goals coming straight out of the SEL as a 20 year old on the worst team in the NHL. Add in the fact that he's defensively responsible, and whether or not he lived up to "the hype" is meaningless. The bottom line is that he had a very successful rookie year.

I wouldn't deal McDonagh for him, as I already alluded to, but there's no need to undermine Paajarvi to make your point regarding McDonagh.
