If this deal doesn't jive with you Panthers fans, what would it take from the Vancouver organization to land Jokinen ?
don't really see the need to add him... especially for that package...

this leaves a hole on defense for us... plus we don't have a 2nd round pick in 2004 (Hedberg) and Umberger's compensation will end up being that 2nd rounder.

we add another top 2 center to play behind Morrison - moves Henrik to the 3rd unit ... doesn't really add up to filling any holes for us though.

I'd be more interested in a smaller deal to get streaky disappointment Huselius (yea he has been both - streaky and disappointing so far)... if Dudley is through with his love affair with Huselius and wants to move him, he could make more sense, and maybe find some chemistry with the Sedin twins??

although I wouldn't give up too much for him, as he's still a risk player... probably Umberger and ?? I doubt his value is that much higher than a mid 2nd round pick at this stage.
