You were the guy who dropped the WJC list, the other poster dropped a similar list to show how little bearing the name association really holds. Are you really going to act like a day trader and pretend Paajarvi's stock goes up and down on a daily basis like currency?

He struggled this year, no doubt, but is he the first young player ever to hit the sophomore slump? For whatever reason it happens, and has happened to such players as Iginla, Bertuzzi, Briere and Doan to name a few.

Some parts of his game were ugly (creativity and decision making in the offensive zone), but what else changed to suddenly make him such a poor prospect?

- He's still a very responsible defensive player.

- He's still got an excellent combination of size and speed.

The remainder of his game is about average, but I don't see why he couldn't become a Milan Michalek type of player. Either way, I'd hardly call him a write off.
