I would love the Pens to get Jokinen for a few reasons.

1- He has the ability to be the difference in the shootout, and shootout points add up. 5-8 points form shootouts could be the difference between home ice advantage in the playoff or being a bottom seed.

2- He gives the penguins another offensive threat in the top 3 lines

3- Most importantly, he is good friends with Janne Pesonen and would greatly help Pez' chances of becoming an NHL player. If Pez can quickly adjust the NHL, he has the offensive ability to be a top 6 winger, and the Pens are looking for a scoring winger to play with Sid.
