I was meaning more playing style, but yeah you are right about the work eithic, compete level, and leadership. Maybe having a chance at winning would change him.
Another thing that I don't like about Jokinen is his faceoff ability. I'd like to get someone who could be an ace in offensive situations. Someone besides McDonald.
