I'm on the fence with Jokinen.

He has a terrible attitude, not good on faceoff at all for a centerman and he is just as bad as Kovalev when it comes to making costly turnovers. He also has never proven to be able to bring his game to another level (thinking about his last WC apparition because he never played in the playoffs yet).

On the other hand, he is a big size center we haven't had for far too long and nothing tells us we will get one soon. He is also a shoot first kinda guy and should work well with a playmaking winger like Tanguay.

He covers some needs that we clearly have been needing for a while but he also brings quite a few issues that seems to raise a red flag. If we could somehow get him, I'm all for it because let's be honest, we don't have many other options if any at all for this year or this summer.

He will be like with Kovalev, it will be a love or hate him player here and just like Kovalev, if he produce, nobody will ever say anything wrong with what else comes with him.
