Jokinen is a 2nd/3rd line sniper, I for one would love to claim him. Although he is another softy euro.

this is crazy,

 

Jokinen is to Carolina what Franzen is to us (without the routine 50 point seasons) 

 

He cashed in big on ONE giant playoffs and since carolina never went back, who knows if he's still a beast post season. Regardless, he's streaky as snot, but when he's on,..he's clutch as all get out.

 

Not much left of the shootout specialist anymore though i'm afraid.

Jokinen is tempting but not really what this team needs.

Jokinen could turn out to be another Franzen. If we could get him going, it might be better than sacrificing assets at the deadline.

Claim Jussi Jokinen! Frees up other assets for trading purposes. Come on, Kenny!

Jokinen is to Carolina what Franzen is to us

 

I don't think he is Carolina's best scorer.

A. At present Franzen isn't our's either,...

 

B. several years ago Jokinen was carolina's best scorer,...just like Franzen was for us. 

 

C. I even said in my post that Franzen routinely scores 50 points,.......

 

The point i was trying to make is that both got contracts based on their abilities in the post season (and the fact that in 09 jokinen was a 60 point player)

Why do you waive a player who has 46, 52 and 65 points in his last three seasons? One of them was also a 30-goal season.

He's having a down year, but he's usually around a 50 pt guy. Still fairly young too. 3 mil contract till 2014. Could be worth it

The general thoughts around raleigh (where I live) is that he's washed up. He's been on Carolina's third line and had his job basically stolen by Riley Nash. He's no where close to that 30 goal scorer he was during Carolina's Eastern Finals run.

I'd seriously consider Jokinen, not as a permanent fix, but as something that could help.  How far down the waiver list are we anyway?


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

I don't get this either even if he is having a down year.

Yes, but he could also turn out to be another Franzen. ;)

Really weird move by Canes GM Rutherford. He could have gotten a low pick at least.

 

This is like Garth Snow weird.

Columbus will snap him up. They go to the shootout almost every single game.
