Maybe give him 8 million over 2 years. If I was Burkie I wouldn't do more than that, maybe try to get him for 7/2 or 10.5/3...
That says less about Jokinen, and more about the quality of the FA pool though, doesn't it?
Personally I'd say no - underachieving players just aren't what's needed here.
That, and Jokinen doesn't appear to be the type of player that Burke prefers; if he were, he probably would have been involved in the Phaneuf deal, no?
