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.
I would do the exact same thing: Sign him to a 1-year 2-WAY extension.

The thing about Joensuu is, he's not a sniper, he's not a speedster. He's a power forward type of player. And for this kind of player and his size, his physicality is just not there.
