No, hope he's good enough that you keep him over a Bickell or Stalberg next year as depth (Bickell and Stalberg could command 3M+), while dumping Montador who, unfortunatley, doesn't fit into the team's plans next year.

If Jokinen sucks, you could buy him out or you could hold onto him and and see if there are any takers in the off-season looking for secondary scoring.

Not saying it's perfect, but thought it was a potentially useful deal for both teams. Two guys, overpaid for what they've brought this season (Monty's obviously been out) and both cleared waivers and are in the minors.
