That line has also been pretty ok on the forecheck.
He can't score to save his life but he can create offense.
You make it sound like the Hartikainen/Paajarvi line hasn't visited the o-zone at all which just isn't true.
Simple question. What production has Paajarvi accomplished or contributed to this year or last?
One can talk about the rare offensive forays all one wants. MPS is a poor offensive player and cycle player. At best he's somebody that can rush the puck with speed and bring it to the net the odd times he's so inclined.
Funny the way you mention Harti as he's the player that can sustain the puck in dangerous areas. I like the looks of him playing with talent more than Paajarvi right now who handles the puck like its a live grenade.
