Jensen staying overseas great news for Canucks?

You may have read in the Province today (if you still read newspapers for some reason, as I got a chance to do whilst being otherwise swindled at Mr. Lube) that Jensen intends to stay overseas due to the likelihood of an extremely shortened NHL/Canucks training camp that caters to veteran engine-revving rather than prospect opportunities.

Let's face it, Jensen probably wasn't going to get that much of a look unless Kassian fell COMPLETELY flat. Even then, Weise, Hansen, Burrows and Raymond are probably either ahead or on par in the RW depth charts.

The way I understand it, if Jensen never reports to the Canucks this year I don't think it would eat a year of his contract away... it would be great to get Jensen at another year on rookie salary if he ends up being a bottom-six filler. Playing in the SEL is pretty much parallel to the AHL anyway, and he's getting first-line minutes over there.

Thoughts?
