I think he's right. We had much better options at the time. Sutter made a trade deadline move simply because our team had a couple of injuires even though the team was still doing alright.
I think we would've been way better off without trading for him in the first place, we could've kept Lombardi, re-sign Cammy and sign Bouwmeester in the summer. It was basically a swap of Cammalleri(6M) for Jokinen(5.6M) if you look at it and you tell me whos better in a Flames uniform.
So while I agree Jokinen was not awful with the flames, I think we were much better off not getting him in the first place.
