[QUOTE=ViD;58589109]I think EDM does it in a heartbeat, but it would be terrible for CBJ. MPS is an undersized forward which will not clickth with the CBJ system[/QUOTE
Undersized??? He is listed as Height: 6' 3" Weight: 208. I might consider that trade. Nikitin hasn't looked great to me this year and Columbus has other D-men NHL ready. What they don't have is many forwards with speed and skill.
Nikitin has looked pretty bad at times this year, but I hope it's just due to still having jet lag. I'd hate to see that last season was a fluke, but he does have an awful tendency to make horrible passes this season.
Sounds like some of you guys are mistaking Paajarvi for Omark (?), or someone else. Paajarvi is a big kid who skates like the wind. It's his finishing skills that have been put into question, making many believe he'll top out as a good 2 way winger but on the 3rd line as opposed to top 6.
