Magnus Paajarvi's development could be helped by a trade.

The Edmonton Oilers are steeped in young front-line talent among their forwards.

Their headline players are Jordan Eberle, Taylor Hall, Nail Yakupov and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.

Paajarvi has not yet developed into a productive NHL player, but he has the skating speed, net drive and skills to become a talented player.

The Oilers are far from a finished product and need help on the defensive end. They could use a veteran defenseman and would most likely be willing to move Paajarvi in order to get a defenseman who could steady the ship.
