Jensen the " Goal Scorer "

64 posts in this topic

I have been thinking about this for sometime, as I think Jensen is a gem, and could be wasted if AV puts him on the wrong line. My point is that he needs playmakers to excell, not shoot first kind of players, and he needs to be with top 6 players IMO.

This leads me to believe that he is much better suited for the Sedins rather than playing along side Kesler and Booth.I could be proven wrong, but that's how I see it.

How I see the lines, when Kes is back, is like this...................

Sedin/Sedin/Jensen.............................pure scoring line, hard for other teams to handle

Hansen/Kesler/Burrows........................number 1 checking line, will out score their checks

Booth/Schroeder/Kassin.......................Can crash and bash, but has the talent to score goals

Sestito/Lappy/Weise.............................Energy and size

Pinizzotto/Higgins/Raymond

I really like the first 2 lines and am not sold on the 3 line completely ( weak at center ), but I have not factored any deadline trades into this mix. Not sure about Kassin there either, but bringing in Jensen could really cause some good problems for AV and MG. Not sure how I put Pini, Higgi, and Raymond into the line up. I think I would also be bringing up Archibald for the playoffs for that size.

I really think we could take a good run with a 2/3 line center, and we have great assets for trade in, a combination of Booth, Raymond, Higgins, Luongo, Shcneider and our 2014 1st, that is a lot of talent to danggle out there.

Very confusing really, which is why I am a fan and AV and MG run the Canucks. What do you think of the first 2 lines...............any suggestiions? Feel free to make changes.

in your dreams, AV will never put a barely 20 years old on the first line.

Ray gets the call over kass but other then that I wouldn't mind seeing the combos.

Burrows and Kesler played well together when they were both agitating checkers, not sure how well they play together anymore though. Burrows will always be the 3rd Sedin in my book. Kesler needs a mature passing veteran winger in my opinion. Also maybe If Jensen starts scoring lots of goals maybe Kesler will have more faith and pass to him more.

Burrows is a natural left winger and Hansen is a right winger. Other then that, pretty decent

Top line seems too easy to play against and not defensively aware enough. I think he'll be on the 2nd line with Kesler and Booth if he gets a chance this year. Sure he's not a playmaker but no one else really is either.

Yah, it's not like Kassian started the season there or anything.

Assuming if we picked up a 3rd line center at the deadline how about a line of Jensen - Scroeder - Kesler? Now I know Scroeder is weak in the circle and Kesler is a former Selke winner and whatnot but we honestly need consistent production out of our 2nd line. Kesler can take the draws but his play has always been more suited to be a winger. It's painful to watch him go for the wrister time after time and Schroeder can distribute the puck well. Even Jensen - Schroeder - Kassian could be a solid line. I just think Schroeder is our best option of a 2nd line playmaker as it stands right now.

Higgins over Weise on the 4th. That's ridiculous.

Sedin - Sedin - Jensen

Burrows - Kesler - Kassian

Booth - Schroeder - Hansen

Sestito - Lapierre - Higgins

Raymond

Pinizzotto

Weise

We still have absolutely no idea how Jensen, Sestito or Pinizzotto will fair with this team. Those are some pretty big guesses.

Jensen 'the goal scorer' hasn't really looked like one since early in AIK's season. Lately, as the games become more important, he's become a bench-warmer.

He'll have to go to Chicago. If he looks tremendous all over the ice there, then he can be called up. If not, goodbye for 2-3 yrs.

I was trying to respond to the OP in a language he understands. Rubbish.
