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".
Kadri doesn't have the work ethic to make the NHL and most likely end up as a career AHLer. You do have a point that MPS was not that physical when he playing in the NHL, but he didn't play the protected minutes like Kadri was. This year in the AHL something has lit a fire under MPS's butt and he has become a physical force. MPS is a coach's dream with his work ethic and attitude, were Kadri can be a coaches nightmare.
