Is Jarkko better than Jiri Dopita? (Just joking!)
The original offer is a joke because Datsyuk is a 26 YO player who almost scored a PPG last year, and is one of the best young players in the game. Granted, he has struggled in the play-off's, but so have a lot of other young players. A 2nd round draft pick doesn't come anywhere close to bridging the gap between a great young proven player, and any prospect, unless the prospect is a guaranteed blue-chipper, which isn't the case with Immonen as far as I know (and I'm no expert by any stretch of the imagination).
