I was tired of Perron/MPS comparisons and predictions of MPSs career. My thoughts are between that trade and picking up JJ we have filled that role and scored ourselves a better two way forward.
All the luck to Magnus in St. Louis I will add.
Yeah I pretty much agree. Getting Perron was a steal, plus we end up replacing Paajarvi anyway. Perron and Joensuu have been very good here and Paajarvi struggling again. This guy has had a lot of NA Pro hockey to still be struggling like this and still trying to find his game. My longstanding theory is that Paajarvi given a choice will take the easiest road and hope nobody notices. He's not particularly comfortable with the physical aspect of the NA game and hasn't been since he got his bell rung good in rookie year but he'll play that for awhile if he feels his back is to the wall. He's never really going to amount to much imo.
