Understood. But, keep in mind that he's had, what... 50, 55 games now in the NHL? My point is that the Isles don't have to be in a hurry to let him go. They have leverage, they have a young team, and they have time and opportunity available for players like Joensuu. I'd sign him to a cheap 1 year deal and let him fight it out for a spot. At the worst you have a 13th forward that you can waive if you don't like him in camp/early season.

I just think it's silly to be pencilling in Nino and Petrov on your third line right now.
