We don't need more 2nd line talent. We need legit 1st line talent. Let's have some standards for a change. Everyone was thrillled when we acquired a mediocre scorer in Penner, and look how that turned out.

If we're not getting Parise, Nash, Bobby Ryan ect. Than we might as well just go with kids from Manchester.

And after seeing the return EJ got, DL should be checking JJ's value on the market right now.
I totally agree with the first part; the last thing we need are borderline, washed up 2nd line talent like Jokinen. If those are the only available guys, and Parise/Richards aren't options, we have young guys who should fill those spots for a much lower price tag. But trading JJ is a ridiculous idea. He just signed a 7 year extension; no ufa or even our own rfa's will sign long term here, ever. I'm not even the biggest JJ fan but that would be the worst move DL could make.
