So your answer is "it worked before so it will always work". Ya Paajarvi is working out great along with countless others. Rushing prospects is always on the minds of GM's so don't pull that nonsense. How about a stroll down Columbus's graveyard of draft picks?

It is a stupid and risky move for very little reward but that is why Edmonton is not known as having been well managed, stupid moves.
