Yeah that stunk. I remember the original trade involved Scott Barney instead of Jokinen. Thankfully the league rejected the Palffy trade to the Rangers, which is what enabled the Kings to swoop in and get the deal done. I'd make that trade again seeing how much of an impact player Palffy was and how Smolinski gave the Kings a decent 2nd line center, who eventually netted Tim Gleason from the Senators, who later got us Jack Johnson, which enabled the Kings to acquire Jeff Carter. It's the trade that keeps on giving.
