Not likely.

I'd say the earliest he probably plays in NA is the 2005-06 season (assuming there is an NHL going then :p). They probably won't sign him after this year unless he can come out of nowhere and win the MVP award like Miettinen did last year. That's a real long shot. However, two more strong SM-Liiga seasons might be just enough to entice the Stars to bring him over.

Edit:Speaking of Jokinen, he had a goal and two assists in a 4-4 tie with SaiPa today, and he was named the second star of the game.
