**Jensen, clearly not ready for the Big Show...yet**

85 posts in this topic

No dis to him, still love this draft choice by Gillis but clearly this guy is probably 2 seasons away from being able to be an everyday player for us. I think he gets sent down as soon as MayRay is healthy and definitely by the time Kesler is healthy! Great experience for him tho and hopefully he builds chemistry with Schroeder when he gets sent back down to the Wolves in a couple of days.

and please dont even bother trying to blame his inevitable demotion on AV. He has been in good situations from playing with the Sedins and also 2nd unit PP tonight briefly. No need to rush this guy, if we were a crapty team then it might be a different story, but as it turns out we are pretty deep in forwards.

Good luck to him and his continued development.! Good Canadian boy!

Dunno how many more games he can play before he uses up a year on his ELC, but he'll probably be down when he hits that limit.

Little scared with the puck but hes quick and not a liability defensivly.

I think he looks pretty good. Brings speed, youth and a drive to play hard. Also hes not Canadian, he's from Denmark. :)

It's only 2 games and his line is caught in their own zone most of the time. Can't expect much yet. he'll get the spark. He's not Jagr after all :towel:

I've been impressed with him defensively. I don't think he has shown everything he can yet, I think he could play better offensively.

But I think he is really nervous. Its his first time in the league, its not that surprising. He's still shown some good things.

Well, he will be sent down when we get Kesler back and with Raymond, we won't even have room for Jensen.

Sedin-Sedin-Burrows

Raymond-Kesler-Kassian

Higgins-Roy-Hansen

Weise-Lappy-Pinnizotto

Yep, no room for Jensen when everyone is healthy. I assume they will just send him down once he hits the 5 game mark.

I thought he held his own tonight actually. Maybe a little tentative at times but was not a liability defensively and showed some offensive creativity a couple of times. Obviously he'll be sent back after 5 games, but we saw a bit of our future on display there with him on that line with Kass. I thought that line played well overall.

It's nice to see him getting a look while we have a spot and not just 4th line duty. He is not ready but he has pleasantly surprised me by not being a defensive liability at all. He just looks nervous and that is pretty normal.

He's new to the team. He's just scared of making mistakes he'll improve with a few more games

He seems good so far, but I don't believe he's ready yet. He seems a little scared, but it's his first call up the big club, what can you expect?

Other than that, he seems to have good speed and good hockey sense. He should be a decent player once he's acquainted.
