His style of play reminds me a bit of Datsyuk, though I think he projects to be more of a goal-scorer than Dats (although Datsyuk has been on track for more than 30 a few times, now), and a bit less of a playmaker, though he does have a superior playmaking element to his game.
Good comparison. I was impressed by him in the WJC.

I would give just about anythin for this guy to end up on the Bruins...Thanks to some relatives I've seen every game he's played this year via DVD and he is just unreal. He'll be a generational star the second he steps foot on NHL ice.

Tons of speed and skill. In his little ice time at the WJC he looked like the most dangerous player on the ice at times.

I think that's the most replays I've ever seen for a not goal.

...

you guys may not agree, but he reminds me a bit of Rick Nash since both are just great at slowing down the play and then all of a sudden exploding with a move...both seem to like to drag the puck during their moves...both are great at protecting the puck when need be...both can score. similar size too

3 thoughts come to mind.

1) Ales Hemsky makes that move a couple times every game, but doesn't lose the puck.
2) If MSP always keeps his head down like that, he's going to get killed.
3) He's 16 years old and playing in the SEL... that really is impressive. Outside of Hedman, does it happen often?

it sure is impressive. it should be mentioned though that MSPs father is an agent and has been instrumental in MSPs early SEL career. He seems to be able to handle it though...

All true, but Ales Hemsky is also renowned as one of the better puck handlers in the league, and he's also an NHL'er reaching his prime.

Nothing against Hemsky though, I love him; I'm just explaining the disparity.

Paajarvi will be a welcomed addition to any team that gets him, and he'll be a great player in this league, if all continues accordingly.

This kid has an amazing skill level. I remember hearing about him on HFBoards even a couple of years ago when he was only 14.

Ingen respekt

And quite a lot of 16y doesn't have size to play it against men in seniors.

I have been reading alot about him the last 2 years or so. He seems like he will be the real deal. A potential superstar in the NHL. How does he compare to Finland's Toni Rajala? Is he better?

Magnus Svennson Paarjarvi. Is he a franchise forward. Does he compare to Forsberg when he was 16 years old. I read somewhere that he was a prodigy not seen in Sweden since Forsberg.

JFA87-66-99: If i remember this correctly Svensson-Pääjärvi is better than Forsberg/Sundin and so on at the same age (acording to some "expert" that actually does work with hockey for a living, i forget which one it was though)

How ever you see it he's up there, if this kid is this good at 16 in a country where players usually doesn't bloom until their early 20s you can just imagine how good he can become.

If he keeps developing he will become a franchise forward no doubt, but please remember that he is still young and rarely does everything work out as planed. He does have that potential though.

Dr-nix. Wow Paarjarvi is better than Forsberg/Sundin when they were the same age. So he has the potential to be one of the greatest swedish players of all-time. Thanks for the insight.

Yes, I think so. For the OG 2010 a lesser version of our Golden generation will have to carry us, with players born around 1980. That includes Sedins, Pahlsson, Z, Juice, Tallinder, Nik Kronwall and Henrik Lundqvist.
Not too shabby but I think the generation born around 1990 will be the real new Golden generation. They will probably include players like:

G: Enroth, Markstrom

D: Nik Hjalmarsson, Stralman, Edler, Victor Hedman, Anton Myllari, Adam Larsson

F: Niklas Backstrom, Dick Axelsson, Patrik Berglund, Mikael Backlund, Tedenby, Paajarvi-Svensson, Anton Lander, William Wallen

And a lot more possible candidates...

He has the potential to be as good as Forsberg for example, I doubt that he will reach that level though. There's a huge step from being good to become a superstar.

I dont know about that, or I think he absolutely dont got potential to be as good as Forsberg, or in other words become the best in the world.

He just isnt as explosive as AO, Crosby and the likes, nor is he a great playmaker.

I think Paajarvi in comparision with the best, like Forsberg, Jagr, AO, Crosby and co, is far behind.

He is on level with a Phil Kessel IMO. Can become a nice 75-80 pt player.

Dude, he is 16! If that doesn't tell you something, you may want to rethink your scouting career.
Power has to do with coordination and muscle development, and his playmaking ability has to do with coordination and experience. You are comparing him to adults, and this guy may still be riding his moped to practice.

Hehe, you wanna bet Pääjärvi isnt build like AO in 2 years?

Seriously though, sure you got a point. But I don't see that potential to compete with the best in the World, with the likes of AO and Crosby. I just don't.

I don't think his hockeysense is "amazing", and thats by far the easiest way to become one of the best; physical specimens like AO and Big E dont come around often...

Pääjärvi is great, the 3rd best prospect we have had since the 1998 (1980s), but not at the same level as AO, Crosby and co.

Hmmm... Well, beer didn't build AO's excellent body, nor Crosby's. I know "juice" isn't hard to come by in Sweden, but considering the attention MP has drawn to himself in a small country like Sweden, he'd be caught in no time.

I'm not sure I agree with you on the "hockey sense." At least not with AO. That boy is a one-way deal, TO THE NET. Nothing wrong with that by any means, but my point is that MP will not need to apologize for himself when the time comes for him to make the jump, and I truly believe that he will be the #1 Swedish player as well as one of the absolute premier players in the world when he gets older... maybe not in two years, but with good fortune, his career will last longer than that.

How would you compare Paajarvi to Backstrom, what type of player is he? I love my Swedish prospects

From watching Backstrom, he's adopted very quickly to the NA style of hockey. He's been great along the boards, great vision, extremely patient with the puck, and very rarely giving it up in the offensive zone. He's already playing like a pro, if points told the entire story on how well a player is doing, Backstrom would be at 55-60.
