PAP was a AAAA player to use a baseball term. He's run hot with Tavares but there wasn't room for him to play here and certainly not room for him to get 1st PP time.

He's getting prime ice time on a terrible team, not the first guy to put up points in a spot like that. He's got decent not great speed, decent not great agility, strong puck control, above average vision and passing, and an ok shot. That's the same makeup as 2/3 of the AHL lifers who play top 6 minutes there. They don't get to play with two guys who can straight bury it like Tavares and Moulson so they don't have like 50 asssists right now like he does.
