I didn't want more than 3 years so that is a great signing.

Ziggy66 07-02-2012 08:14 PM

**** ya! Some consistant veteran scoring!!!

Thrashers94 07-02-2012 08:14 PM

Love the fact that it's for 2 years, good bridge to Sheifele.

umwoz 07-02-2012 08:15 PM

The price is okay, right around what he's worth. Hopefully he can be re-energized by our youth and fans and step it up.

That said, I think this seals us out of any of the big fish of the market.

Turkey.
****ing.

GDTs will not know what have hit them, and I am not Jokinen.

Guerzy 07-02-2012 08:15 PM

YES!!! From everything we've been hearing about him changing his ways, this is GREAT!

2 years, PERFECT.

I am so pumped right now! Welcome to Winnipeg, Olli Jokinen!

MrWigglez 07-02-2012 08:16 PM

PERFECT contract... I didn't think there was any hope of getting him for 2 years. Wow I'm excited.

This takes pressure off the team rushing Scheifele to fill the second line centre spot.

Our GDT's will be epic now! :laugh:

Beauty signing.

Beyond perfect.

Exactly the player we need for the lineup and two years is soooo golden.

trebendan 07-02-2012 08:17 PM

The price is a bit high, but since it's only 2 years, I'm fine with it. You have to overpay to get guys at this time of year.

This was the first thing I thought of.
Welcome to Winnipeg.

We basically just need to sign any backup goaltender and Free Agency officially becomes a win for us.

JetsFan815 07-02-2012 08:18 PM

Great News! :handclap: Now all we need is to resign Wellwood and I think we'll be good to go for this season :)

WJG 07-02-2012 08:18 PM

Really like this.

Epic photoshops, and another addition to our pun lineup with a few leaving. We're not re-stocking players, we're re-stocking pun ammo.

Skobel24 07-02-2012 08:19 PM

I'll leave this here. it belongs with you now. Good luck Jokinen!

I am on cloud f'in 9 right now!! TURKEYYYYYY GIRL!!!!!

Guerzy 07-02-2012 08:20 PM

Sign Wellwood, and I'd be loving this line-up,

Kane - Jokinen - Wheeler
Ladd - Little - Burmistrov
Ponikarovsky - Antropov - Wellwood
Machacek - Slater - Thorburn

Give or take on the lines, nice depth and it gives Noel some nice line combination options.

Not sure if Wellwood will be brought back given we've got Miettinen and all, but we'll see. I like Wellwood and think he fits in quite well here.

wpgsilver 07-02-2012 08:20 PM

Perfect.
Pretty much in line with what everyone was predicting.
Good job Chevy,maybe7 now some people will get off his back ;)

Huge sigh of relief.

dpenner 07-02-2012 08:20 PM

omg Chevy just sits back and does nothing on getting free agents, im tired of building the draft over twenty years, my god we need a new GM he cannot attract any talent here........

NJRangers35 07-02-2012 08:21 PM

Great signing for you guys. Really thought someone was going to give Oli 4 year at 5 mil per. I really enjoyed watching the Jets this year. The most pumped I have been for a hockey game in I can't even tell you (not including Ranger games) was the Capitals Jets game that was on NBC Network when the Jets were in the playoff race. Three of my favorite non-Ranger players in the NHL are Byfuglien, Kane, and Pavelec. Also being from New Jersey I watched the Devils a good amount and loved how Poni played this year.

With that all said what are your lines looking like for this upcoming season. I was really hoping you guys were going to be able to bring Glass back this year. Thanks in advance.
