You can’t improve without guys like this in the comp. Not necessarily an out-and-out star, but could be a regular first grader and definitely a reliable replacement depth player. He’s also young and has shown moments of class, so with the right coaching could be a very good player.
It’s unfortunate Paix has been injured. He is far better than Turpin in attack, obviously not as good defensively, but definitely should be pitted against Turpin for a starting spot for 2022 given they are both in the final year of their contracts.
