Ottawa doesn't rush players.

Dude, you've admitted Paajarvi is a 3rd/4th line winger. If you think he's still better and more valuable than Cowen, then that means you don't know ANYTHING about Cowen. Admit it, it's OK. We get it, you can't watch every single NHL game.
Since we aren't discussing things rationally I'll join Schultz's approach of taking random pot shots without actually making a point.

You'll get called out on this. When dealing with an Edmonton Oiler fan you have to factor in "potential" when comparing players. You see Greening might be a better player right now than Paajarvi, but Paajarvi is going to be a 100+ point player in the future, so it is insulting to mention Greening in the same sentence as him. They have been brain washed into believing that all of their players are gold and no matter how many times they finish dead last in the league nothing is going to change their mind.

Just take comfort in the fact that a 160 pound third year defenseman put up more points than their best forward last season.
