The Artist Formally Known as Karl Magnus Pääjärvi-Svensson

Despite what the jersey says, Paajarvi-Svensson is doing his best Marik Mailk impression
By Dan Moser 

That's right Oiler fans, huge news coming from TSN that, get this, future superstar Magnus Paajarvi-Svensson has decided he will now only go by Pajjarvi Pajaarvi Pajarvvi Paajarvi! This is big news of course because as you can see from the picture above, he prefers to have a cluttered jersey with the name Paajarvi-Svensson on the back. Wait, what's that you say? In the picture above his jersey only has one last name? Oh well that must just be an anomaly (sorry), clearly he prefers both names on his sweaters:
Getting drafted is harder with the sun in your eyes
Okay well that photo is just not fair. Paajarvi-Svensson didn't get to choose the name on the back of that one. Given the choice, I'm sure he would have gone with both names like in this one:
2 minutes for kneeing and a game misconduct for only having one last name on your back!
Alright well now I'm just confused. This story was on the front page of TSN for crying out loud! Twitter was full of tweets about this huge name change! Hfboards went insane! So what gives? Well I guess when it comes down to it, it is September (sorry) and everyone is getting a little antsy.

Anyway, out of respect for the biggest story since goaltender Jeff Drouin-Deslauriers decided to just go by Jeff Deslauriers, and plus I need to run down to the store before it closes and see if I can get half my money back if they take the Svensson off my order, I will just link you to a site generates Wu-Tang Clan nicknames. I'm the Optimistic Lyricist. Ironic. 


  1. This is hard hitting journalism, Moser. Mark Spector from the National Post better watch his back!

  2. Spector's a bum.

  3. I think Spector just does Sportsnet now.
    I agree he is a bum. I can't remember the last time I read his stuff or heard him speak without him bashing the city of Edmonton for no real reason. And then, he backs it up saying he can talk that way becasue he is from there.

    I don't care for Mark Spector.

  4. I was hoping people would comment with their Wu-Tang names. I expect too much from the interweb.
