I agree with the detroit model but one of the reasons they develop their players for so long is because they draft late. Bruins and the Hawks both had young players contributing to their cup run. I think a guy like Jensen for next season is in a situation where he likely could play limited minutes in the NHL, some PP time and get 8-9mins a game. Not really ideal but if he ends up being NHL ready that could turn into 12-15 minutes. In jrs he could dominate which would be a good thing as well because it will teach him what it feels like to be the best player on his team and be counted on night in and night out. AHL, not an option but that would be the best. I don't want to see him in the NHL next season unless he is ready...but if he IS ready they should not keep him down just for the sake of "going through the process". He gets 9 games in NHL unless he has a bad camp IMO.
