pretty easy to forget that jensen is only 19. i too think the best thing for him next season is the AHL where we can give him his cup of coffee at the NHL level. i feel like being around the sedins will do wonders for his maturity. passion for winning and anger after a blowout loss, like others have said, are positives for me, but he still needs to learn to channel that appropriately, not at his own teammate.

Im all for him in the AHL next season, but am I wrong when I say he still won't be eligible?

Most fans on this site love their teams' prospects unconditionally, or at the very least, have a severe bias. This is fine and is part of what makes this site great (and also terrible!).

He will be eligible next season as he turns 20 this year.

Nobody really knows exactly what happened. Goalie could've been out partying the previous night or Maybe the goalie was laughing after the loss. I know Jensen wasn't happy after losing to Canada in the WJC and seeing his teammates clowning it up.

What we do know is that the coach wasn't happy with Jensen and must have considered him to be in the wrong. This would seem to be a reasonable conclusion if Jensen was the only player to be scratched.

Of course he is benched.Coaches don't like to see their young guys having arguments with goalies.If some older guy or a captain did it,he would be on the ice.

On the other hand,we don't really know what happened there so the situation could be much worse that we think it is.

quit making excuses when you don't have to. He's 19 and no one is perfect.

Another factor is that Jensen is a rental player, maybe the goalie is not. Who you going to make an example of?

This exactly. There are a lot of attitude issues we don't want to deal with here. Hating to lose, isn't one of them.

Somehow I don't see this going down too well with Schneider or Luongo (or whoever second goaler happens to be) when either of them get lit up -- as happens once in a while.

Do you see him saying that to a player of their calibur though? I don't think so.

I think that we have a strong enough leadership core (Sedins, Bieksa, Luongo if he's still here) and many others which I hope Jensen will come to respect and through this respect they will temper his overfrustration with losing. It's not the worse thing in the world to be over competitive, better than him being someone who parties too hard or something. If we surround him with the right people and don't thrust him into a leadership role right away I would be very confident that this won't be an issue at the NHL level.

I've gotten a good look at Antoine Laganiere this season and I'd say he is amongst my top free agent this season, along with Andrej Sustr and Nate Schmidt. I'd also add Ryan Walters to my list of wants!

Laganiere definitely fits into the mold Gillis has been trending towards, a package of skill, speed and size. He covers a lot of ice in little time, seem him breakaway and drive to the net quite often. Also, with the system Yale plays, He is very aggressive on the forecheck and has thrown some strong hits along the boards. When you combine all of this with his hands, you can see why the Canucks first invited him to camp and why they are scouting him now in person. He is the player we'd want Beattie to become at the end of his 4 years.

Not that high on Zengrele anymore. Looked invisible in most of the games I've seen this season. Just doesn't create much and looks much less dynamic than he was when Schultz was there. TBH, the last couple games I watched, LaBate and Lee and Mersch looked much better than Zengrele.

Another FA I liked was Spiro Goulakos, but unfortunately he was just diagnosed with cancer. So I don't know what to do with that. He is definitely a very noticeable player for Colgate, solid defensively, can skate very well, very mobile, and has a high level of offensive awareness. The PP with and without him is stark. Hopefully he can recover and return next year?
Hey feebster, you have any thoughts on Rylan Schwartz, Jaden's brother?

Not good news on Jensen but without the whole story it's hard to know what to think but clearly the team felt it was on Jensen.

One thing I'll say is that if Jensen hates people that don't care if they lose he'd have punched out half the Edmonton roster if he was there.

I agree. He likely wouldn't have the chance even if he wanted to. My point was that any goalie can have a bad game and if an upstart 19 year old were to accuse him of not trying he would not be appreciated. He should be benched. Of course none of this has been confirmed so ...

Wonder how that argument with the goalie started. Not great to hear this but at least you know he's a competitor and hates to lose... eh, not going to make a big deal out of this.

Jensen is traded to the Islanders. Snow and Wang's bodies are found washed up on a beach 1 day later.

I'm betting it went down like in Moneyball: Jensen walks into the lockeroom after the loss, to see the goalie stripping to music and Little cheering him on. Jensen goes all "Is losing fun? This is what losing sounds like" then walks out and smashed something - in this case, something belonging to the coach. That is why he sits.
