Hurricanes re-sign Jussi Jokinen
Two year deal. $1.5 million this year, $1.9 next.

Unless for some strange reason I don't know of Canes fans wanted him gone, this is a great deal.

Good sign.

Kamina 06-29-2009 04:28 PM

Wow, great signing.

Flyers Fan Forever 06-29-2009 04:29 PM

Damn, he was really good in the playoffs.

piqued 06-29-2009 04:31 PM

Congrats to the Canes and Jussi, I'm glad he was able to catch on somewhere.

ColePens 06-29-2009 04:41 PM

Great signing for the entire league. Hopefully sets the bar for that type of talent so we don't see over payments on average players.

Great signing for Carolina as well.

Schenn 06-29-2009 04:42 PM

Great deal, he is a playoff warrior!

semin4captain 06-29-2009 04:53 PM

He actually took a $375,000 (or thereabouts, don't exactly know how to calculate QOs) dollar pay-cut off his qualifying offer in the first year. Rutherford tried to do the same with Ruutu last year but Ruutu wouldn't budge off it.

Good signing, hopefully he can continue on from the way he played in the playoffs

vofty 06-29-2009 05:02 PM

Glad he did well and found a home in Carolina, good signing for him and the Canes.

Phinor 06-29-2009 05:07 PM

Great signing for both parties. I hope Jokinen finds a permanent home for his career in Carolina.

UnPLEASED Anton 06-29-2009 05:12 PM

I do too, might send my blank authentic off for JOKINEN 36 in the next few days

eric71* 06-29-2009 05:14 PM

Nice Sign! :)

spintheblackcircle 06-29-2009 05:32 PM

Well done by the Canes.

ThunderRoad 06-29-2009 05:42 PM

Good signing. Always seemed like a really great guy - it's nice to see him fitting in so well in Carolina.

Sasha Cares 06-29-2009 05:47 PM

Hard to get a player that can play all F positions, pk, pp, shootouts, and win faceoffs for that price... He might not be great in anything but shootouts, but I love his versatility and attitude

OmniSens 06-29-2009 05:56 PM

good signing, considering his playoff role, it's good for the 'Canes

Still All In 06-29-2009 06:06 PM

Hopefully he can bring back his regular season production. Carolina seems like the right environment for him.

Lint07 06-29-2009 06:24 PM

Good for him, he earned it.

He should've tried to go for 5M$/per, though :sarcasm:

DeathFromAbove 06-29-2009 06:36 PM

Rutherford continues to save NHL careers around the league...Jokinen was a warrior in the playoffs.

DarKarTs 06-29-2009 06:40 PM

Glad to see him finally find a home.

Fan of The Game 06-29-2009 07:13 PM

This is great news as a Canes fan, I too also hope this sets the bar. Also, I ma pleased to see Jokinen took a pay cut rather than test the market and inevitably getting a better deal by some team. Kudos Jussi

Rivet52 06-29-2009 08:16 PM

Great signing for Carolina. He was great during the playoffs and if he can carry that into next season the team will look good. Glad to see him finally settled somewhere.
