MP has alot of work to do.
I do get you main point though, might as well be patient.
I don't know about Chimera, but Cleary, if I recall correctly, was drafted as a skilled offensive prospect who was not overly physical early in his career. I think if Paajarvi realizes he has to develop new characteristics, he could develop into a very good checker who could chip in 30-40 points year in year out.
