This is pretty much how I see it as well. His offensive stats will not help his value, but he has played very well lately. Since the Oilers have talent to fill the top 4 winger spots they need to develop some good but cheap bottom six players. So while it was not what was predicted he could still turn out to be a very valuable contributor.
As to Jon Blum, I'd pass. The 2010-2011 version had a lot of value, but his play seemed to regress a lot last year. I have not seen him play this year so I might be wrong but his TOI numbers suggest that he has still not really etablished himself. (Has he been hurt?) At 24 that is a bit of a concern. So while I like him as a player I would not want the Oilers to trade Paajarvi for him.
That said I am surprised that Paajarvi would be a guy that the Preds might covet.
