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?

Yeah, I'd much prefer if he finish up his year there. Maybe if we're struck by injuries we can bring him back for the playoffs, but otherwise there's no need to rush him.

I don't think many people had Jensen penciled into the Canucks line-up for 2012-2013. He turns 20 in March, so it would have been Junior or Sweden for him, no AHL until his Junior team got eliminated. We could have given him a 10 game try-out, but given the past history of MG I don't think he would take chances with an under 20 player unless he played lights out in training camp. I think he'll spend '13-'14 in the AHL with a couple of call-ups, and possibly a regular spot in the line-up for '14-'15.

Is he still eligible to join the Wolves after AIK's season?

Yup, what with how well AIK's doing this year he should be with them shortly.

Jensen is one player I am really excited about. We can use Jensen as Naslund lite, Kassian as Bertuzzi lite, then sign Brendan Morrison to center them.


Admittedly I haven't thought this plan out that well.

Why not use Jordan Schroeder in B-Mo's place?

We have a guy named Brendan in the system.

Jensen - Gaunce - Kassian

Perfect 2nd/3rd line.

Hopefully that's the case in the next 2-3 seasons. Really good mix if they met their potentials.

Actually with how AIK is doing right now, he will be with them until early April, as they would be playing in kvalserien as one of the two worst SEL teams.
