I think you know about the scouting report below:
Projection: "He's going to be a third-line player who could be a good second-line player."

Best Case Scenario: "A second-line player who plays in all key situations for you."


That's a 19 year old winger who is currently playing on the 1st line in COL and is 3rd in team scoring, 1st in team +-, lately only after O'Reilly in TOI/G and plays all key situations...

I am not saying that projections about Lander will definitely turn out to be wrong but please don't go on about scouting reports... Especially since you've already dissed them in the case of PRV...
O'Reilly is another guy that started his NHL career very slowly except for one good stretch of games, look at him now. Hard work can really pay off, Lander and Paajarvi should keep this in mind and work to their goals, both could be key players on the Oilers for many years to come.
