Only slightly more homoerotic than the Canucks top line

So during the Monday Morning Standings from two weeks ago, Steve-O and I threw out our predictions for round 1 of the playoffs. Time to look back and see how we did…. Continue reading 'Playoff predict-o-rama – Round 2!'»

I'm tired of trying to remember if it's Paajarvi first, or Svensson first.. and how many A's to use. So here we have MPS...

Hockeyanalen.se reports that Edmonton Oilers GM is currently in Sweden scouting Edmonton Oilers prospect Magnus Pääjärvi-Svensson (be impressed by the fancy dot usage). Credit to M Ace at HFBoards for posting this article which caught my eye.

I ran the site through google’s translator (which is pretty impressive) and then through the patented Racki Google-Translator-to-real-English Translator ™ and came up with this translation of the article:

If I were to guess his review it would go something like this: “lots of crying, plenty of shitting the bed, but you can’t help but love ‘em.” You can guess whether that was a review of his daughter or the Oilers.
