The only issue I see is that the return would have to be pretty large. Maybe Florida would see that he might not be back since he is a free agent but I think if Jokinen went on the open market, there would be many teams bidding.
I agree. He'd be ideal. And I agree that the price would be high.

I just don't know if it'd be worth it considering that we'd probably only have him for 1/2 a season. It might be worth it if we get a Stanley Cup this year. Otherwise, it'd just be a completely thrown away asset(s).
