You've taken BigDaddy's quote out of context, but at the same time kind of proven his arguement at the same time.

In the majority of sens fans eyes Havlat is a *big* game player. The arguement has turned into Jokinen is exactly what Ottawa needs because Ottawa don't have much time to win the cup (which I think most sens fans disagree with).

Jokinen hasn't ever been a *big* game player in the playoffs. Your asking sens fans to trade a guy who *is* for a guy who *might be* based on what? 3/4 of a good season last year? a 0.56 PPG clip rate this year?

Ok... so lets for a moment assume your correct. Jokinen rules over Havlat in Hockey. Why the hell does Ottawa want to change a succesful formula? If all there success is down to Havlat beating up on third pairing guys why do Ottawa want to change it? Just for fun?
