Jensen can't be signed to an AHL contract, once again he's too young. He played in the playoffs for the Wolves only because Oshawa's season ended early. Jensen could do 9 games up here and then be sent back to Oshawa, although if he is really NHL ready he could play next season with us and skip the AHL altogether.
In my opinion Jensen is not ready, he was injured 2 games into the Wolves playoffs, and isn't at a stage where he can take hits from grown men.
I voted Schroeder because he's defensively responsible now. He could work out as a 2-way centre at the NHL level or else fill the undersized 13th forward role AV seems to like so much.
Lack should be on this list, the guy is NHL ready. He's played 2 seasons now with the Wolves, he's done his time, any more games at that level may hamper his development.
I say none. Schroeder might be NHL ready, but I would rather have Pahlsson or an equivalent player playing as the 3rd line C.
This "youth" movement thing comes up every once in a while and ill say what i say everytime.. The players deserving of a spot will earn it, if their not ready then they won't be on the team. Simple as that.
Im not convinced any of those players are anywhere close to being ready for the NHL and the only one who may be is Schroder but im only judging by what ive read.. and its not exactly like he's lighting up the ahl.
Im not saying they should get 30+ games or anything... more like 5-10 games over the next couple of seasons for certain players like Jensen, Rodin, and Schroeder. Even goalies call them up here and there. I wouldnt really care if Lack would have started a game this season, especially when Luongo was hurt.
