[PIT/CAR] Jussi Jokinen to Pittsburgh for cond. 7th; salary retained
 
Pierre LeBrun @Real_ESPNLeBrun
Carolina has moved Jussi Jokinen to the Pittsburgh Penguins, pending a trade call

Schenn 04-03-2013 12:26 PM

Must be some sort of salary retention?

cjm502 04-03-2013 12:26 PM

Do the Pens want the cup or something?

Reaper45 04-03-2013 12:26 PM

Pens want all the forwards.

CAR trading Jussi Jokinen to PIT for a conditional pick. Trade call pending. CAR is taking back some money in deal. #tradecentre

Nice, surprised they would take another winger. I know Jussi has played some C in the past, but don't see where he fits in here.

Dupuis - Crosby - Kunitz
Iginla - Malkin - Neal
Morrow - Sutter - Cooke
Jokinen - Vitale - Kennedy

I guess, but Jokinen might just rot a bit on that 4th line, don't see how he can bring much to the Pens.

A 4th liner with some grit might have been a better fit, but behind their unreal top 3 lines, I guess it doesn't matter.

Wow an actual NHL trade. Slightly odd move for Pittsburgh but whatever, more forwards for the grinder.

clearly a panic move after losing to the sabres at home:sarcasm:

Why is there some kind of new rule with shootouts in the playoffs? :p:

canadiensnation 04-03-2013 12:27 PM

Hurricanes will retain some salary per TSN

Ollie Queen 04-03-2013 12:27 PM

Biggest deal of the day, when all is said and done, most likely?

Jokinen could do well in Pittsburgh. I know he's been bad this season, but he has the potential to contribute more than just a random body.

JeffMangum 04-03-2013 12:27 PM

Brennan Klak @nhlupdate
Carolina retaining salary in the Jokinen deal.

jarome 04-03-2013 12:28 PM

wow pitts really going for it.

caley 04-03-2013 12:28 PM

Conditional pick and salary withheld.

HawkinMI 04-03-2013 12:28 PM

Just give 'em the Cup :sarcasm:

Le Magnifique 66 04-03-2013 12:28 PM

Welcome to the Burgh Jussi

Meh. Depth and injuries can happen.

bleedblue1223 04-03-2013 12:28 PM

I'll laugh if the Pens defense has another meltdown in the playoffs again. This offense will be ridiculous when Crosby returns though.

Paradigm 04-03-2013 12:28 PM

I'm assuming he'll play some center with Crosby out, but where does he fit in when Crosby returns to the line-up?

Ynnek 04-03-2013 12:28 PM

Keep loading up Pens.

English stars fan 04-03-2013 12:28 PM

Pittsburgh wants ALL THE PLAYERS.

Depending on the cost, good depth deal

State of Hockey 04-03-2013 12:28 PM

You knew Carolina had to help another take him when Jokinen cleared waivers.

Le Magnifique 66 04-03-2013 12:28 PM

Any chance Kennedy is also going with the Conditional pick? :laugh:

TrillMike 04-03-2013 12:28 PM

Wow Pitt again

They must if they traded a pick for a guy who just cleared waivers. Carolina eating some salary maybe :dunno:
