Olli Jokinen

View Poll Results: Would you consider bringing Olli Jokinen back via UFA as a 2C?
Sure, why not. He has skills we can use. 45 69.23%
No way. He has a tainted history here and bringing him back would be a mistake. 20 30.77%

I can see a lot of posters remember Olli's negatives. But to be honest, for me he was one of the bright spots in our torturous playoff-less streak. Just comparing his production from last season and he'd be tied with Flash for tops on the team with 61 points. I think we could do a lot worse than giving him a two or three-year reasonable contract.

Does Tallon overspend with Olli though? I hope not.. but 3M for 3 years would be perfectly fine with me.

Do you think Dineen would put Olli on the first line? Maybe as a winger position with Weiss?

He should be centering the 2nd line, no question IMO.

Weiss, Jokinen, Goc, Smithson/Matthias is a nice group of centers for the time being.

That would be perfect. I'd hope the first line. I think we'd benefit more with Weiss on the second line.

Just think how good our PP could be with Olli included.

No I'm not, you are. But I'll once again root for your team if Olli gets signed. What do you think, is it more stupid to be a fan of certain player than a fan of certain uniform?

I agree. I also just wonder about what happens when Bjugstad and Howden join the team? What happens if both of them plus Hubby makes the squad next year? Aren't they centers? Do we not pursue Jokinen? I know Matthias can play wing, but Smithenson has been darn good in the faceoff circle, so do those rookies play wing until they get comfortable? Do we scratch Smithenson? How does all of that play out?

I don't think Tallon gets to decide who plays next to whom.

Jokinen is not very good in the faceoff circle (wins less than 50% consistently over his career and last yr) so it would benefit everyone if he had someone on his wing who can take the faceoffs. And yes Huby, Bjugstad and Howden could all play winger initially in the NHL. Huby was only playing LW in preseason this past yr with us, Howden has mostly played LW I believe (and has always been slated to play there) and Bjugstad did play some RW his freshman yr as well. Just bring in the best talent and let everything work itself out on the ice. If thats the worst problem we have, I'm really not worried

Rumor has it that the Islanders are going hard after Jokinen

They're after every UFA every year. How many have they signed? Streit?

I'm strongly becoming in favor of bringing Olli back. Do it Tallon.

Pretty much this. NYI can go hard and persue Olli all they want. Doesn't mean anything if there isn't a mutual interest.
