For the love of all that is good.. I mean Jussi Jokinen
What you care about and what is reality don't necessarily have anything to do with each other. The reason he was moved away from center early in his career was because he was not effective there. He was moved to the wing and flourished and that is his position now. If you want to have a sub-par psuedo-center we can acquire one for a lot less than Jussi Jokinen in terms of assets and dollars. Why would we move Miller and a 3rd for Jokinen to be a subpar third line center for us when Miller will likely be our third line center next year and for several years after? If you want Jokinen to add creativity to the top-six, it's an understandable proposal but I'm not sure we can afford it. If you want Jokinen because you think he's a center because he's filling in there while Carolina has injuries, I don't really need to waste any more time arguing with you. Jokinen is not the answer to our center depth.
