Paajarvi has shown to be more than ready to suit up for 3rd line if it is requested of him. Lander could be a Pahlsson type of role player which would be extremely useful.

4th line could be: Paajarvi - Lander - Hagelin

This is all very hypothetical of course, as it stands as of today I don't think that Lander and Paajarvi are even close to a spot if everyone else is healthy.
I agree, speed bullets like Paajarvi is valuable in modern hockey and he will be interesting to follow.

Lander being extremely underrated, his adjustment phase to North American hockey is taking a while but high potential, no doubts. Very allround player with natural leadership skills, could be a clutch player. Hopefully he will prove his offensive skills as well. I believe he scored a couple of goals vs Texas Stars in AHL playoffs recently with 4-5 shots on goal / game. Not sure if he is injured right now though?

Edit: Lander played some very good games vs Texas Stars but is now injured:

Officially diagnosed as a "lower-body injury," Lander could be out for a while.

#OKCBarons will be without Anton Lander tonight in Gm 4 vs. Texas (Barons lead series 2-1). Big loss. Had scored 4-1-5 in 6 playoff games.
