If he continues like this I think it will come down to a judgement call where we have to weigh his importance to the team and his salary against the possible returns we could get for him in a trade. There are some big "if's" in this situation, but I can honestly say that I am not at all sure of what the outcome of that kind of judgement call will be.
We gave Petry a 1.75M deal and he was in a similar situation... moving between AHL\NHL and by the end of ELC playing major minutes in NHL and contributing..
Gagner scored a lot more and got a 3.2M deal after the ELC ..
Paajarvi will be getting something in between these 2 contracts depending on how he goes rest of the way.
