That being said, Jokinen is a hell of a player when he's on his game. I just wonder if any hard-nosed coach will get the most out of him, or of he's completely reliant on Iron Mike to get him into the game.

Grachev - Jokinen - Gaborik would be a very fast, very large first line that could do A LOT of damage. On the same token, we could end up with another overpaid, 50-60 point FA center.
Jokinen is not a player I would be interested in. There is a reason he was been traded twice already and most likely wont be resigned in Calgary even though they need a #1 center for Iginla. The guy is good when he is the focal point but he doesnt make the players around him better. He didnt work with Doan and he hasnt worked with Iginla, I would doubt he would work with Gaborik. Marleau IMO is the better option.
