2004-05 AHL: 79 games, 29 goals, 45 assists
2005-06 NHL: 79 games, 14 goals, 14 assists

Zero reason for the Oilers to buy high and sell low with 21 yr old Paajarvi, trade him when his trade value is so low.
Yep. Cause no teenager has ever had their development hurt by being rushed into the NHL. Nice example - Brown spent a full year in the AHL after struggling in the NHL, exactly what I think would benefit Paajarvi a lot.

Unless you think that 10 minutes a game with Belanger on the 3rd/4th line is the best way to develop a skilled prospect for the top 6....
