hes not a great distributor of the puck, very north american type player, he can score goals, and he does so by getting to the dirty areas, but also with a very strong shot. I think he and Gaborik are going to work really well together because, as an actual offensive threat out there, he is going to take pressure off of Gabby, is going ot clear up some of the garbage, and since Gabby is such a superb passer, I think he's going to score some goals that way too. I dont think hes going to help Gabbys goal total so much as his assist total and I think he will help spread the load a bit.
He's not Ilya Kovalchuk, but for the vast majority of his career he's been a #1 center, and that is something we simply do not have now.
Jokinen is also physical, throws the body around pretty well (like most Fins do) and will drop the gloves if he has to (hes not a fighter, but he isn't scared to do it either, guy has guts)
worse comes to worse though, we got more talented
