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?
It certainly looks like Sutter was after a player under contract for him. He didn't have to take Kotalik. Who could the Leafs have offered who is healthy and under contract next year that could contribute this year?

Leafs really don't have much left that fits that category.
