Jokinen would probably have to play on the 2nd line (due to his weak defence), pushing Berglund to the 3rd line.

I'd rather see a 2-way centre picked up, even if he scores less than Jokinen (but significantly better on offence than Sobotka). But, really, I'd rather have them pick up a better scorer than Jokinen, who can also play decent defence, to play on the 2nd line, bumping Berglund down to Line 3.
Yes. Yes. Yes. Frankly, I want the Blues to bring in a top center, pushing Backes to 2 and Berglund to 3, but I know that isn't likely to happen. So I would be thrilled with a center that can push Berglund down to 3.
