I would rather make a move like that once we are a weak playoff team.

If we do it in 2 years, then if he leaves 2 years after that when he's a UFA we don't really care as much because we had him for 2 years in the playoffs.

If we ship Paajarvi, he plays in Edmonton for 2 years where we miss the playoffs, and then he goes elsewhere via UFA we wasted a young asset.
