Nicklas Jensen

seems how Nicklas Jensen has been playing great through the pre-season and that he has had the best chances for Vancouver in a couple games now, i'm presuming that Nicklas will get an opportunity during the NHL regular season while Kesler and Raymond are out with injuries. Jensen's play in the corners, in front, and on the Power Play have stood out to me in the games he has played, especially in the corners. He looks invincible down low with the puck, it seems he always created chances from behind the net and down low, and he backchecks very hard and has a good work ethic. I can't see why Vancouver wouldn't carry Nicklas for the Home opener vs Pittsburgh and play him on the 3rd-4th line. i think he could really be usefil on a line with Malhotra and Higgins. once Raymond returns to the line-up I think AV will send Jensen back down to Oshawa (OHL) to get some 1st line minutes. Either way I wanna know what you think the will do with Jensen.

He had a great camp but he's probably not physically mature enough to handle the rigors of an 82 game schedule plus playoffs. Canucks are in win now mode, they can't afford to give roster spots to such young guys.

We'll just convert this thread to a Jensen appreciation thread!

I remember Bryan Allen pretty much making the team in his draft year, except that he couldn't agree on a contract. Blew out his knee the next year and has been pretty much a disappointment ever since.

I keep wanting to say his name with a hard J no matter how many times they say it like Yensen on the commentary.

Well...

What are people's predictions for his stint and the future with the 'nucks?

That would be ideal, and free up more cap space on an ELC that could be used elsewhere. Let`s just hope Jensen takes another step forward development wise in Junior this year.

Ah, don't worry about it. Most people here would agree with your OP anyways, so this will generate discussion regardless.

With the injuries, I wouldn't have minded seeing him get a few games as well, but it just came down to a numbers game. They would have had to put another player on waivers in order to give him what would surely be an cup of coffee.

Imma put the label of our best prospect under the age of 20.
He's obviously got the talent, the size, the smarts. Now he needs the muscle and boom, this kid will be a good one. I'm glad MG went with a safe pick on this one. 29 is a hard spot to be drafting.

If all goes well, I'm seeing Schroeder rise to our big team ranks next season, with Jensen helping out as either the first call-up in Chicago, or as the 13th guy who we could sit out whenever it feels like the grind is too much for him and he should take a few days off.. unless, of course, he turns into the Hulk this season hitting the gym and he becomes our Scott Glennie.
