I don't think he was eligible to play in the AHL this year, it was the OHL or Europe.

No, he just seems like someone that listens to what the team that drafted him thinks is best for his development.

You read the situation wrong. No need to carry on trying to make Jensen look like he's done something he shouldn't have...

He seems like the kind of guy that wants to do whats best for his career, if thats going to the AHL I would imagine he is fine with that.

Oh well I still think he is leading the team in points, or close to it. Not bad for a 19 year old getting 15-18 Minutes on the worst team in the SEL.
Jensen is 4th on the team in points, 9 behind the leader.

Alright yeah, I remember he was leading in something, I just haven't checked in so long I forgot, I guess what I actually ment is goals not points.

Edit - Heres an article,
http://vansunsportsblogs.com/2012/10...scoring-video/

He had 8 goals and 3 assists in 15 games to start the year.

In the next 19 games he has had 4 goals and 1 assist.

Jensen plays for a prett sucky team, he seems to be the only consistent scorer.
Jensen had 1g & 2a in his teams 3-4 loss today.

Jensen is number 2 on the rookie points list, but clear number 1 in terms of goals.

http://estat.hockeyligan.se/c/LPlaye...YearCategory=1

Jensen also has the most goals on his team.

http://estat.hockeyligan.se/c/LPlaye...ayerPosition=0

Jensen also had 6SOG which put's him at 14 league wise

http://estat.hockeyligan.se/c/LPlaye...s.aspx?LId=250

And number one out of all the rookies.

Just saying what i heard and feel.

If it turns out that he doesn't want to stay in NA playing low mins or in the AHL; than i guess what i heard early on is truth. If not, then i was wrong and he wanted to further himself in a better league (apparently at the request of his NHL team)

Just speaking my mind. It's a message board after all.

And sometimes people on message boards can be bitter & have an agenda to trash a player. This is what it seems like with you.

Dude went to play on one of the worst teams in the SEL. I don't think you have a clue what you're talking about.

Jensen made it clear that he had nothing left to learn in the OHL, he wanted a challenge and decided that he was going to play pro this year, either in the NHL or SEL (he can't play in the AHL yet because he's still 19). The Canucks agreed completely with him and gave him the green light to go overseas where he's been putting up tremendous numbers for a 19 year old.

He wants to play in the NHL, that's his goal and he's made it very clear about that.

Jensen also said to the media, I can't remember who, that he liked the OHL and all but just found that he was better suited to a more tactical structured game like in the A, NHL or SEL. He is more suited to a game that actually has a tactical approach.

That doesn't warrant your silly accusations. Comment on his game all you want but accusing him of immorality and selfishness is stepping over the line - even on a message board. It's clear that you don't have a clue about what you're commenting on. What you "hear and feel" is not a proper counter argument to facts. Your accusations are baseless and absurd. Just leave it or present something with substance.

First this is someone else's post but thought it should be in here. Thanks to opendoor for figuring this all out.


Quote:
In the last 20 years, here are the 10 best goal scoring seasons by Jr. aged players in the SEL:

1) Forsberg (92-93): 23

2) Hornqvist (06-07): 23

3) Naslund (91-92): 22

4) Naslund: (92-93): 22

5) D. Sedin (98-99): 21

6) D. Sedin (99-00): 19

7) Weinhandl (99-00): 15

8) Jensen (12-13): 14

9) Tedenby (09-10): 12

10) Bäckstrom (06-07): 12


On that list, Jensen is the only rookie, though obviously he's older than most of the other guys were in their rookie years. Still not bad for his first taste of pro hockey.

I haven't really been following his progress, but given his stats, it looks like he is doing well. It should be very interesting to see if he can make the Canucks out of camp this coming year. If I recall correctly he nearly made it last season.


My only concern is this: 5/14 goals scored have been on the PP, is that a statistical anomaly? Should we be expecting more ES goals? Fewer ES goals? That is a similar ratio of PPG/G to what D Sedin has been achieving the last few years.
I agree with what someone else mentioned about his assist totals being off but like they suggested it could just be an indication that he lacks scoring linemates.

Play him with the sedins and they will set the record for fewest hits by a line for a season. He didn't get along with coaches for his lack of physical play in the ohl , doesn't initiate contact enough. Good speed and hands but struggles with consistency. Goes on stretches of scoring then the same stretches where he is ineffective. Line demotions effect his play as he believes he should always be the go to guy even when his play doesnt warrant the added ice time. Power forward without the power - 20-20 2nd line player.

Doesn't sound bitter at all. Sounds like he has seen him play quite a bit.

Only want to hear positives eh?

Yup that doesn't sound bitter

And if we only wanted to hear positives this thread would be in our sub forum now wouldn't it? Calgary resident.

Classy.

I think your being a little to sensitive. There was nothing "bitter" about the above statement you quoted..

Plenty of big skilled forwards don't throw bone crunching hits.

Can you recall Jeff Carter throwing a big hit?

Havlat? Hossa?

Not every winger is Milan Lucic.

Your post is full of exaggerations.

@wally31 - why not worry about your own teams prospects instead of always weighing in on the Canucks?

If you actually take the time (you haven't) scroll up and read my posts about Jensen. I'm definitely positive, and think he's a good prospect. I've added constructive conversation to this thread, and have watched him play many times. Just becasue I'm from Calgary, and support the Flames, doesn't mean I automatically hate all Canucks property. (look at some of my posts in the Corrado thread..)

This is a thread where people can talk about "prospects". Jensen is a prospect, therefore, I will interact in this conversation.

Grow up.

I'll tell you why: his team doesn't have any.

Back on topic, I'm excited to see what Jensen can do. I don't know that he will be a star in the NHL, but a solid top six winger is nothing to scoff at either.

When someone you know on the bench says he is a "primadona, selfish player" it makes you change your opinion about someone. Take it for what its worth. I will say what i heard, that is all. No big deal, no harm to the player; His development will continue. We are in a technology world, I am just addressing my personal opinion. Whether it be through someone I know.

Moving on.

Out of all of our prospects, Jensen is the one that I have a real good feeling about.
