Jensen has commented on it, and he said it Yensen. But I believe he said he's fine with it either way.

his dad was born in canada... pronounced jensen

when nicklas was growing up in denmark... he preferred yensen as that would be how you say it in danish, which is the country he associates himself with.

when he was drafted he said he preferred yensen as that is "his" name... after playing with the wolves for a while and people calling him jensen he decided he was ok/fed up with people getting it wrong and said jensen is ok now

We say Yannik Hansen for the Danish Badger. The Danish Jensen should also be pronounced Yensen.

Or call him by what he asked to be called: "Jensen" not "Yensen".

More importantly, how do you pronounce "Roy"? It's it "Roy" as in "Patrick Roy", or is it "Roy" as in "Seigfried and Roy"? :frantic:

People who label others as bandwagoners, people who tell other people "how" to cheer for their team, "how" they should act or what they should wear to "support" their team, people who only want to hear positive thoughts and don't want to read about how the team can do better - these are people who are insecure and uncomfortable within their own skin.

I'll support my team the way I choose, thank you very much. You can choose to support your team the way you want to, and I won't judge you on it as long as you don't try to force your beliefs on me. I'll also be quick to point out where I think the team can do better, because identifying that there is a problem is the first step to fixing it; denying or ignoring a problem won't solve anything.

Go Canucks Go.
