Olli has not played his best this season, however he is still probably one of the best we have available to move the puck and see the ice on the PP. Enstrom will no doubt take that spot back but I think you will see Olli with Bogo on PP2.

It is the same reason you see Wellwood on the PP from time to time. He knows how to look around the ice, move the puck and create plays.

I think most of the Ollie hate is due to people never evening seeing him play a minute of ice time before being in a Jets uniform.
Watching Jokinen on the PP is scary, it's a train wreck waiting to happen, they myth that he is good with the puck and makes smart reads is just a myth, dude is careless and clueless. Jokinen is all but useless even strength why in the hell would anyone want him on the PP, does Pearn still think this 2007.
