I have a few questions about Paul Mara. I know he was drafted 7th overall and he was a PPG player in the OHL. What was the scouting report on him at that time? He started his career with Tampa. He had 36 points in 101 games before being traded to Phoenix at the age of 21. Then in Phoenix he managed to score 10 goals in 2002-2003 and then in 2003-2004, he had 42 points. The season right after the lock-out was the best for him with 15 goals and 47 points. After that season, he was traded to Boston and that's when his offensive numbers went down dramatically. In his last 5 seasons, he has only managed to score 12 goals. I'm a Habs fan so I watched Mara quite a bit in the past few years. I think that he is a decent 5th or 6th dman. He is solid defensively and he can bring some toughness. However, he is slow and it seems like even Hal Gill has better offensive abilities than him. So I wonder what happen to his offensive game? Did he managed to get good numbers in Phoenix because he was logging a lot of minutes on the power play?
