Jokinen's game has not changed since last year. Last year, everyone regarded his time here as an absolute failure. My opinion of him hasn't suddenly changed because he's gone from a 5.5 million cap-hit to 3.

Jokinen is still completely incapable of developing chemistry with any of his line mates, no matter which line he plays on. This is looked over when he doesn't play on the first line because we don't scrutinize the bottom 9 like we do whoever is with Iginla. Jokinen is always making moves with the puck like putting guys offside or throwing the puck where no one is around to get it. His production is 9th on our team, and 8th amongst forwards (Moss has only played 7 games and is closing in as well). I don't know how people can continue to defend him. He is the same frustrating player as always.
+1 to this.

Also we get a game that jokinen dosent kill our momentum with his turnovers.
