Sign the Man

This is Magnus Pääjärvi-Svensson. He might be the most NHL ready Oilers prospect, and yes I’m including Jordan Eberle and Taylor Hall/Tyler Seguin.

I’m watching the WHC Bronze Medal Game today and MPS has the only goal after one period. It was a beauty from the off-wing, the kid took a pass with those soft hands and found twine on a nice goal against Germany.

Steve Tambellini is over in Germany to meet with MPS and his representatives. Reading the tea leaves, we can expect a contract signed and a “discussion” about whether or not he is ready to play in the NHL.

I think the Oilers want to be careful not to rush anyone. Their handling of Jordan Eberle this spring tells us that much, and I do think there’s a chance they would send Tyler Seguin back to junior should the club select him at this summer’s amateur draft.

I think Paarjavi–based on his experience in a pro league and his progress since he was drafted–should be considered as a strong option for the roster this fall. If he comes to camp and loses a fair race at LW against the Oilers portside vaunt (all of Penner, Jacques, Moreau, Cogliano currently) then so be it.

But I don’t think he will. MPS is gyllene already.
