I have no problem with the Jesse Joensuu signing and think he might even be able to help the Islanders on our 4th line.(He has some skill and size but is a slow skater) Still going to need at least 1-2 proven NHL scorers(Center and Wing) added to our line-up from the UFA market or a trade.
What I remember of JJ is he would get right in front of the net( dirty area) and he had good hands,
It was as I remember that he was too slow for the game.Almost like Brett Lindros was too slow for the game.Brett tried hard it seemed,he fought and checked but he just was a step behind the game.
Hopefully JJ will surprise us with a little more maturity and hopefully a lot more speed.
