Magnus Paajarvi: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Paajarvi had to be one of the biggest disappointments for the Oilers last season. After convincing him to play in North America for the 2010-11 season and watching him score 15 goals and 19 assists, the team watched those numbers plummet to a mere two goals and six assists last year and sent him to the minors. He should be the Oil's third-line left winger this year which should see him improve his numbers, but perhaps only to the 30-point plateau. Push that up a little if they choose to use him on their second power-play unit.
Paajarvi had 15 goals and 34 points in 80 games in his first season with Edmonton last season - a good first step. Paajarvi will look to increase those totals in his sophomore season but that may be easier said than done as the Oilers should begin the season healthy, which may lessen Paajarvi's ice time and could even see him spending a majority of his time on the third line rather than as a top-six forward.
Paajarvi best talent is his skating ability. He can melt the ice as he is flying around. The Oilers convinced him to leave Sweden and play in North America this season. There were some rumors that they enticed him to do so by guaranteeing him a roster spot, that is untrue, and he will report to Springfield of the AHL if he doesn't make the team.
This guy is the best skater in the draft and the Oil have the best ice in the league. He's absolutely dazzling and will be a star, delivering goals and helpers with ease. Don't be scared off by his so-called "low" production in the Swedish Elite League. He was playing against men and most of this draft class played against their peers. He should be near the top of your 2009 keeper draft list.
