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?
