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.
I'm not using this as an argument but I'd like to hear your response. MDZ put up 37 points in his rookie season which is more than Paajarvi. How would you compare their successful rookie years and is there any difference? i.e. Paajarvi could have a sophmore slump too - would his value suffer in your opinion and by how much?
