Exactly what I came to post. Nino is almost 20, you can use 21 and 19 but Nino is barely a year younger than Magnus. And Paajarvi scored 34 points in his 19-20 year old NHL season.

I think it's obvious that Paajarvi's the better player, but the Islanders drafted him hoping he'd become an offensive dynamo with some physicality. While he had a terrible year, I don't think they want to give up on him two years after drafting him 5th overall. So while I think the proposal is slanted in the Oilers favor, I cannot see the Isles making that deal either, especially with the uncertainty with the 1st round picks.
