I didn't want more than 3 years so that is a great signing.

Love the fact that it's for 2 years, good bridge to Sheifele.

The price is okay, right around what he's worth. Hopefully he can be re-energized by our youth and fans and step it up.

That said, I think this seals us out of any of the big fish of the market.

YES!!! From everything we've been hearing about him changing his ways, this is GREAT!

2 years, PERFECT.

I am so pumped right now! Welcome to Winnipeg, Olli Jokinen!

PERFECT contract... I didn't think there was any hope of getting him for 2 years. Wow I'm excited.

This takes pressure off the team rushing Scheifele to fill the second line centre spot.

Beauty signing.

Beyond perfect.

Exactly the player we need for the lineup and two years is soooo golden.

The price is a bit high, but since it's only 2 years, I'm fine with it. You have to overpay to get guys at this time of year.

We basically just need to sign any backup goaltender and Free Agency officially becomes a win for us.

Great News! Now all we need is to resign Wellwood and I think we'll be good to go for this season

Epic photoshops, and another addition to our pun lineup with a few leaving. We're not re-stocking players, we're re-stocking pun ammo.

Sign Wellwood, and I'd be loving this line-up,

Kane - Jokinen - Wheeler
Ladd - Little - Burmistrov
Ponikarovsky - Antropov - Wellwood
Machacek - Slater - Thorburn

Give or take on the lines, nice depth and it gives Noel some nice line combination options.

Not sure if Wellwood will be brought back given we've got Miettinen and all, but we'll see. I like Wellwood and think he fits in quite well here.

Great signing for you guys. Really thought someone was going to give Oli 4 year at 5 mil per. I really enjoyed watching the Jets this year. The most pumped I have been for a hockey game in I can't even tell you (not including Ranger games) was the Capitals Jets game that was on NBC Network when the Jets were in the playoff race. Three of my favorite non-Ranger players in the NHL are Byfuglien, Kane, and Pavelec. Also being from New Jersey I watched the Devils a good amount and loved how Poni played this year.

With that all said what are your lines looking like for this upcoming season. I was really hoping you guys were going to be able to bring Glass back this year. Thanks in advance.
