It'll likely take two forwards to acquire Jokinen, including a centre that can play top-6 minutes. I would imagine it would take Hagman and Stajan to land Jokinen.
And no way the Flames deal Backlund for Tlusty, who is extremely overrated by Leafs fans.
Hagman has a couple years left, is that not an issue for the Flames? Flames already probably teh best d in the league but adding Exelby as an expiring would still be amazing. Him and Gio as your bottom pair, plus you need depth for those playoff runs.
and not sure about the overrating thing, both have not been able to make the NHL roster and Tlustly has but up better numbers in the AHL. I think they are comparable but Playmaker for Sniper
but yeah it was a shot in the dark and best not to complicate the deal. Like the idea of Backlund and Kessel
