IMO bringing in Jokinen doesnt fix our weakness which in my mind is too many good centers that dont have wings to complement them. If we bring in Jokinen as the #2 center, who are his wingers? We already have a couple centers playing on the wing. I think this team needs wingers, not another center. I am comfortable with Forsberg, Carter, Richards next year with Handzus playing wing and able to move to center if either has a problem.
I just dont want to stunt the development of Carter and Richards and hurt the chemistry of the team. If brining in Jokinen for Umberger doesnt do that then fine, but I like the chemistry this team was showing when the majority of the team was playing.
A number of people have said that Jokinen can play wing, similarly to Nedved in that it doesn't seem to matter where he plays, he's not married to a position. Jokinen plays both centre and wing in Florida if I'm not mistaken and I believe most people anticipating this trade have penciled him in as a winger.
