Did anyone think of those "I am Canadian" commercials with the girl asking the Canadian guy if he knows some random canadian she knew when Duthie asked Jensen about Hansen?

Even though I have never seen Jensen play a minute of hockey I will confidently predict that he will be a perfect fit for the Sedins.

Ha, I was curious about who was the last #29 pick to play in the NHL right away, so I looked it up. Turns out it was Stan Neckar for Ottawa in 1994.

His coaches? Some guys named Bowness and Vigneault.

Ok first of, am i missing something in the Vancouver/Wild history that could explain the 'Wild's obsessive hatred towards us? from chanting 'USA' when the Habs announced their pick, to booing us for no apparent reason... I dont think we've even booed the f7ames when we hosted.

Anyways, after watching his highlight reel, he looks like a Vanek type player, He's big but i dont know if he plays like a guy with a 6'3 frame. I like that the Canucks are drafting bigger players now, I hope we draft a couple more big guys that can skate and use their late pick to draft a mean SOB... like a Boogaard/Chara size that could kick ass and i would happy

I wouldn't mind the Canucks using a later round pick on Kale Kessy. The kid is downright mean and has a decent set of hands. Could be a very tough and effective 3rd/4th line winger later on.

I'm quite excited to see what happens tomorrow!

Somebody brough up Loui Eriksson and it's not a bad comparison actually. Even down to their pre-draft weaknesses.

I love all the ******** from Toronto writers about noone from Canuck organization mentioning a congrats to Bruins.

And today, only Jeff Marek acknowledged that the Canucks congratulated the B's

Damn. I've never seen him play, so I was just going to compare him to Hansen.

Not a guy I'd focussed on a lot in the lead up to the draft, but also thought he'd be gone in the early 20s. Good size, and while he doesn't initiate contact or physicality, he doesn't shy away from tough areas to score goals. Good hands, although it was interesting to hear the TSN crew compare him to Grabner, who the Canucks dealt.

All in all, very happy with the pick. Can't wait to see how the rest of them go tomorrow.

After dealing with the Asshats from the Toronto and Alberta Media on twitter throughout the Cup Run, I can understand why so many players want to stay clear from those markets. If you thought our media was bad, those guys are infinitely worse. No professionalism, arrogant and when they have an ax to grind it clearly shows.

Damien Cox had the gall to ask for objectivity from Canucks fans. Hellooo we're FANS. We are not professionally obligated to be obective!

I can't find much information on this one. I played street hockey with him and some friends a few times, and went to the same highschool (he's a year younger, though). I don't talk to him so I have had trouble finding information on him. He was ranked 68th but I read somewhere that it's a joke he was ranked up there.

Anyone?

I lived in Toronto a lot of years and basically all their media do is chirp their own team. Not surprising what they pulled this playoffs but I guess I forgot since it's been so long since I read any of their trash.

Sounds like a good pick for the Canucks.

Btw, how good is that Danish league he played in the year before Oshawa?

Bryan Marshall, Herning's leading scorer this year with 79pts ie 2PPG!, only had 36pts in 51 ECHL games the year before. If the caliber of ECHL hockey is slightly better than OHL, then that Danish league < OHL.

I'm sure there is no good comparison between the 3 leagues in actual fact but still, it seems Jensen made a substantial improvement in one year, which is impressive as he basically played twice as many games. And improvement is a must at that age IMO if you're going to be a player in the NHL.

It's their top league. Hansen put up 19 points in 35 games in his draft year. Jensen put up 26 in 34 a year before his draft and then 10 in 10 in the playoffs.

Here are the numbers from the Combine earlier this month. He has put on some weight.

Height: 6' 2.25" / Weight: 202 lbs
http://centralscouting.nhl.com/link3...rm&app=combine

Bob MacKenzie had him at 24 other services - NHL Central Scouting: 21 NAS, International Scouting Services: No. 22, The Hockey News: No. 19.

TSN Scout Grant McCagg:
Danish winger made his OHL debut this season and needed little time to adjust, notching 29 goals and 58 points in 61 games before adding seven goals in ten playoff games. Strengths - Moves well for a big man, has a pro release and shot, strong on the cycle, protects the puck well, soft hands, will drive to the net and battle for rebounds, likes scoring goals. Weaknesses - Doesn't bring it every night, needs to keep moving his feet, scouts would like to see a more consistent effort, not overly physical. NHL Upside - Scouts love his size/skill combo, has the physical attributes to be a top-line power winger.
http://www.tsn.ca/draftcentre/feature/?id=44971

A more in depth scouting report:
Overall Jensen could be that player that becomes the steal of the draft and becomes an 80 point scorer at the NHL level. The real concern is that he becomes the player that never really finds his place in the top 6. Despite his consistency issue, Jensenís skill set is enough to attract NHL teams. The question now, is how attractive are his skills? Can he be drafted in the 10-15 range? Sure. For now, he fits in at 21 in the TSRís final rankings for 2011.

Pros: Game-breaker, Size and speed, High-end skills
Cons: Strength, Consistency, Improve hockey sense

If that was him at 200lbs, then he can probably put on another 10-20lbs. He's going to be huge.

If that's the player he becomes (ie that much better than Hansen), fans will be ecstatic.

I wonder if we could dangle Shirokov for a pick? He's not likely to crack our lineup but might be able to make it elsewhere and it would be a shame to see him flee back to Russia and get nothing for him.

I posted in the prospects thread but there was a recent Russian interview with him and he stated that he's willing to go to the AHL for one more year if necessary, but believe that he can make the team without it. He's VERY committed to staying in North America because him and his girlfriend really like it here.

Of interest, did not place on the combines bench press scores but was one of the strongest on the push strength. This would lead to a conclusion that he is naturally strong but hasn't done a lot of weights.

The consistency issue in my mind could very easily have to do with fatigue - played twice as many games as the season prior! Because in my experience, Danes are like the Sedins - not a lot of emotional up and down. YMMV
