tools? thats why?

6'3", skates well, excellent shot.

The NHL draft is not about taking the player with the most points. I understand your premise here - temper expectations, so they don't get out of hand like usual, but Jensen's skill set, size etc in my mind made him much more highly sought after than Stefan Noesen, Vlad Namestnikov, Tyler Biggs or Matt Puempel (I thought Ottawa was trading up for Jensen...so did many Senators fans).
