Paajarvi was on pace for 59 points last year, meanwhile this year playing with these guys he gets considerably less? In the playoffs he was on a 63 point pace.

My guess would be 110+ points for Eberle and RNH and probably 90+ points for Paajarvi assuming that he's on their line.
They'd probably put someone more physical on LW for Eberle and RNH, meaning Paajarvi would get 2nd line ice time. As for 110+ points, I'm not sure. Even the best AHL players who are later NHL stars have trouble reaching that plateau. And the level of competition as a whole in the AHL will be better during the lockout because every team is sending down some good players.
