Jokinen to KHL

Ok, Here is the link to the article: http://www.lifesports.ru/news/21903

Here is the un-edited english version of the text:

Jokinen is looking for work in the KHL

Striker Olympic Team Finland Olli Jokinen is considering moving to the KHL. This season, a 31-year-old hockey player ends the contract with the Rangers.

New York Rangers club is not going to extend a contract with Jokinen, who's salary is $ 5.5 million.

Therefore Olli Jokine has focused on Russia.


Jokinen has been thrown from club to club. After 7 years in Florida. With out much success he tried himself in Phoenix and Calgary. Then before the deadline Jokinen was traded to NY Rangers.

- I was very upset by the trade, - complained Jokinen. - I was going to finish my career in Calgary."

But the club could not keep the forward on the bench, who is also receiving 5 million per year.


Things didn't go smoothly in New York either. He scored 4 goals in 26 games.
And didn't make the playoffs. Basically a typical story of a newcomer to KHL.

Right Now Jokinen is waiting for JUL 1st. Meanwhile his agent is learning the Russian market.

Reminds you of anything??? *Cough* JAGR....

Has he actually committed to not returning to the NHL, or is he just saying he doesn't want to?

If you want to stay in the NHL as a top 6 player....

dont suck

pretty simple stuff. He can go slack off in the Finnish league if he wants.

.

Any speculation of an over-seas hop is so premature.

I would bet that we don't hear of anything regarding Jokinen jumping overseas until mid to late July when signing season is in full bloom

He's not too happy in New York so he's looking for a contract else where. Plus he's looking for a "better" pay.....


He knows that not every Organization Can Pay him 5 MIL Contract.

Later, Joker.

Maybe his wife is a gold digger and wasn't fond of him taking a pay cut.

If he was hell bent on staying with the Rangers he would have instructed his agent to negotiate with Sather prior to July 1st, but they didn't.

Well, the way the Rangers org. screwed up by handing out huge contracts to Drury and Gomez pretty much laid the way for what was to come. Truth is, the Rangers should have been the Hell Bent ones on keeping Jagr. To see them let him walk, and then pay Rozsival 5 mil per was infuriating. Not to mention Redden. Consider that with Redden's atrocious contract plus Brashear's, would have been enough to retain Jagr, and would have made it difficult to throw money at Redden the next offseason. Yeah, i know that redden and brash may not be the best example, but switch that to Naslund/Somebody and you get the point...Bottom line is :there is no comparison ! Jagr and Jokinen are light years apart.

"a bit of a better player" ?! lol . Are you kidding? To say that Jagr is abit better than Jokinen would infer they are in a similar class, which is ludicrous. Jagr was a top 10 all time NHLér in my book, and Jokinen is pretty much a floating poo in comparison.
