I'm glad that you can see him as a possible asset moving forward. Personally I would rather trim the fat with our redundant players and try to compliment our smallish, yet highly skilled guys with some sandpaper. I would rather Ryan Jones game to MP.
Sometimes us Oiler fans need to realize the value of our players. MP at this moment could be worth a 2nd round pick. Heck Linus Omark didn't even fetch us a 7th round pick!
No need to rush the trade of Paajarvi, IMHO. Give him a year and see if he picks up offence. If not, maybe they should package him for an upgrade in another area. I have a feeling he will never live up to the draft day expectations, but will turn into a solid 3rd liner (Cleary/Chimera type) one day. Probably not with the Oilers though.
