Jokinen pointless in first 5 games.
 
Gotta say, bit surprised to see this. I figured he'd do well with the Jets. He's been playing on the top line too.

Stajan for Jokinen?

I believe that he was on the 2nd line for the first 3 games. Having seen the system Hartley wants to use fast, smart passes and lots of fast breaks it makes sense why we let him go but I am still surprised by his lack of success with Winnipeg especially playing with Iginla 2.0 Kane.

Skobel24 01-27-2013 09:35 PM

Figures, 2 minutes later he gets an assist. It's quite obvious that it happened because of me. No need to thank me, Olli.

God no. Don't want Olli at 4.5 for 2 years.

I'm sure Feaster will find a way to bring back the Jokinen drama in Calgary. :laugh:

I don't think so. Feaster let him go for a reason.

Kane may be Iggy 2.0 (minus the cockyness) and it took Joker and Iggy 3 years to gel. Luckily for Kane, he is quite capable of scoring on his own.

I like Jokinen and the player he turned into here, I wish him all the best.

Calculon 01-27-2013 10:27 PM

I, for one, am tremendously glad he wasn't re-signed. Was an absolute terrible fit here.

And given the problems he and Iginla had chemistry wise, it's bizarre that Noel would stick Kane with him and think it would work, even if Kane and Iginla aren't exactly the same type of players.

King In The North 01-27-2013 10:33 PM

He may not be hot but the Jets are winning games and he's what they needed in the top 6; Burmistrov is in an ideal 3rd line defensive role while improving offensively

BVicious 01-28-2013 07:34 AM

Give Olli time in the WIN, should get back to last years pace. He also didn't play during the lockout. I like him, always have but I'm glad Feaster is/was commited to move in another direction.

tfong 01-28-2013 09:05 AM

Oh Gee we lost out on so much not resigning him :P

Stewie Griffin 01-28-2013 12:14 PM

But he's 53% in the faceoff circle. And I miss the Olli gifs.

Imagine Olli, Hudler and The Anton all on one team?


Nvm I can't, too much awesome to comprehend.

Skobel24 01-29-2013 08:02 PM

1 goal, 1 assist tonight so far.

allan5oh 02-05-2013 03:21 PM

He's been pretty damn good for us to be honest. Wiffed on a few easy goals in the first couple games. Actually seems to have great chemistry with Kane. He loves crossing the line with speed, and passing to Kane after drawing in the D. His first point was an assist to Kane in OT.

The guy backchecks like an animal, although his defensive coverage isn't the best.

He should have a good year. Has been with Kane and Wheeler which would be our #1a line.

Do you think he is worth his salary?

tfong 02-05-2013 04:10 PM

How much they paying him anyways?

That remains to be seen. He needs to work on his shot.

TheHudlinator 02-05-2013 10:33 PM

I'm glad Winnipeg is happy with him out side of his faceoff ability I don't miss him on this team. We essential traded Jokinen for Hudler and I would gladly take Hudler over Jokinen, especially if they both keep up at their current paces (Hudler has 5 points in 4 games, Jokinen has 4 points in 9).

4.5m/2 seasons

MarkGio 02-05-2013 10:43 PM

I have to give props to Tangs for his efforts at centre. As much as I hated losing Jokinen because of how weak and questionable our middle was, Tangs, Backlund Stajan, Jones and Cervenka have done very well.

Skobel24 02-19-2013 09:55 PM

15 games, 2 goals, 2 assists, -7

It's crazy considering many people here had said they'd rather have seen Olli re-signed, instead of Hudler.
