I think he's fairly different than Cogliano, although i understand the comp. First off he has size, even if he never learns how to use it (and that's debatable he's already getting tougher to play against) he'll never be pushed off the puck like Cogs routinley was. He's a much better passer and stickhandler although i would argue worse shooter off the rush. Cogliano went to the middle of the ice alot, Paajarvi does not. Cogliano was a much more aggressive offensive player while Paajarvi tends to exit the zone early. I think at the end of the day Paajarvi should be able to adjust much better to a checking role than Cogliano will and he has a lot more room for growth.
