With the depth we have on the wings, I can't see Jensen making the team next fall, but you never know.
I'm looking forward to seeing Jensen, Gaunce and Corrado with
Booth - if he is moved, it will be because he has not lived up to his contract. Mostly due to injuries, but the effect is the same. When you pay a guy $4M+ per year, you expect production.
We're going back to Manitoba???
Kidding aside, i agree with that regarding Booth. If he's moved, it's because he's not living up to his '2nd line' billing and price tag, and seems more likely to be replaced on the 2nd line by another somewhat established player. Gillis isn't one to gamble on a guy like Jensen filling a permanent 2nd line role right off the bat as a rookie.
