That's one fourth of a hockey season and people are crying about Jokinen? This was the guy that was supposed to be Jokinen's scoring wingman on the Panthers Top Line and he produced NOTHING for one fourth of a NHL season in which he played every game. Zednik was a terrible signing!!!
How many penalties did he draw? Intangibles matter, and there's something to be said for the chances created by a player with speed.

Yeah, good/great teams can get past injuries, but we don't have the depth of good/great teams. To be affected so strongly by injuries without solid call-ups only has an amplifying affect on the negative impact it has on the team.
