Second, Pajaarvi had a very good rookie year. Kadri hasn't been much at the NHL level. At most, you could say Pajaarvi had a horrific sophomore slump. Thats all.

And even if he hadn't made the NHL this year, who cares, one more year in the AHL working on his offense would do nothing but help his career, despite your off the wall claims.
Kadri has 19 points in 51 NHL games for a ppg of 0.37
Pajaarvi has 42 points in 121 NHL games for a ppg of 0.34

Kadri is a -2 in the NHL
Pajaarvi is a -20 in the NHL

Kadri has 42 hits in 51 NHL games
Pajaarvi has 40 hits in 121 NHL games

Kadri's shooting % in the NHL is 10.13%
Pajaarvi's shooting % in the NHL is 6.56%

If Kadri "hasn't been much at the NHL level", Pajaarvi has been even less ...The "couple of huge differences" are that Kadri has played better in the NHL than Pajaarvi has.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not advocating the Oilers ship Pajaarvi out ... His value is probably at an all time low; but lets stick to the facts and not spin "off the wall claims".
