Perhaps if this deal goes down, the teams in the West counter with some deals.

Maybe teams like the Oilers and Canucks. At least I hope the Oilers do something.

$1.85 million I think.

Lombardi and a good pick/prospect would be my guess.

Could you imagine?.

Jokinen to calgary

Jaybo to Vancouver

If both of these happen, Man did the northwest division ever stack up on talent.

I feel bad for edmonton and minny if those go down

I don't like this as a Nucks fan, but how has Jokinen been playing anyway?

I think Jokinen should have gone to Calgary instead of Phoenix, but at the time JM was asking for a ridiculous return, so this deal would make a lot of sense.

I hope they trade Lombardi and Backlund for him. Also means no Cammalleri in the offseason.

Great buy low for Calgary if this is true.

If you think Jokinen would fit in the Habs locker and play under Carbo...

I love the player, but Olli shouldn't come near the Habs.

If the Flames acquire Olli Jokinen then that has to make them up there with Detroit and San Jose as favourites in the West.

Would be a great deal for Calgary if it where to happen.

Poorly, but there will be little pressure on him in Calgary and he could be deadly with Iginla.

I'm just wondering what effect this will have on Gillis, before I would have liked a series against Calgary, if Jokinen plays half decent I want no part of them.

[11:27am] Just received a heads up that TSN is reporting the Flames are close to acquiring Olli Jokinen from Phoenix. I guess that's the "big splash" I was told about.

Backlund is going nowhere! If Backlund is the asking price, we very likely will see a repetition of former years when the Flames were reported to be working on a deal around Jokinen but finally withdrew.

wow. this definitely would help the flames bridge that gap between them and Detroit and San Jose. As a Vancouver fan I hate to admit it, but they would be a very good team if this goes through...

I hate the Flames but Jokinen on their roster would be scary, especially if they don't have to give much up in the way of key assets.

What would Oli Jokinen joining the Flames have anything to do with Detroit or San Jose?

Detroit and San Jose are still a notch above Calgary. Jokinen has been a loser everywhere he's gone. He was unable to do **** in Florida, and completely bombed in Phoenix.

What makes you think he'll do much of anything but eat payroll in Calgary? Not saying he won't turn around under Keenan, but this is a very big risk. This guy has an issue contributing when it counts. That's factual, not heresay.

Agreed. Jokinen would become the priority signing.
