It's a different style of game over there and Jensen will adjust to the style of game that is played over there and then when he comes back he'll have to adjust again. The fact that Jensen showed he can translate his game to the AHL and even the NHL suggests that the OHL is a good developmental league for Jensen. Then again, going into the draft, one negative about Jensen was that he didn't always engage himself and Jensen didn't improve his production this season so maybe Gillis saw something in Jensen's game that he felt would be better developed in Sweden. I don't know.

I thought that was self-explanatory...
