Nicklas Jensen, the Canucks first round selection in the 2011 NHL entry draft is skilled, and rather massive. Standing 6,3 and possessing advanced puck-skills for his age, Jensen was impressive at prospects camp and at training camp last month.

Game Day Recon: Game 5 - Canucks @ Oilers

The Canucks haters must love the first couple of weeks of the NHL. It's the same every year. Slow start, mediocre goaltending, squandered chances, lack of chemistry.
