He was a monster in the playoffs and his speed and talented puck handling makes him a great addition for the hurricanes and next year with steady line mates and ice time should allow him to put up great numbers for them.
There would have been no shortage of other teams having interest in him at noon on the first,so this was a very smart move by the Carolina management locking him up before hand and leaving no doubt in Jokinen's mind that he was wanted there.
Carolina could prove to be just as strong has they have been in the last couple of years and they really do not need much more in the way of young talented players to keep with their already strong lineup.
