Small winger shouldnt have been one of them, regardless of how much we like Perron and how he has played. The team has won three games in their first fifteen. Chances are we may have more wins with an upgrade at goalie, defense, or center.
I agree with this. But the biggest positive for me is that I saw tremendous upside in Paajarvi given his combination of size, speed and skill, something which can take more than 2 or 3 seasons to blossom for many power forwards; and back to the positive, is that Paajarvi will have the ideal environment to bring that skill set along in St. Louis. While we luckily have another smurf to add to our collection!
