I support this, Booth goes nowhere... not yet. Not until we see more of him.
As to Jensen, I would actually leave him in the AHL for 2 years. This was actually supposed to be his 2nd year in Junior. To contrast, Schroeder got a sniff after 4 years of development. By the same comparison, I want to see Jensen spend 2 years in the AHL. Just to hone his defensive game a bit, and be the go to guy for his team there.
I think it was you who mentioned that he could be that rare steal in the late 1st of the draft. At the time, the Canucks had Saad and Jensen as the BPAs on the board. Either would have been good picks. Goes to show that you can find quality, even late.
