Olli Jokinen points totals

What do you guys figure that he will get points wise this year?

Who is he slotted to play with?

Is he expected to play on the first power play unit?

To be perfectly honest none of us know where hes going to play. There are so many variables going into camp not to mention a new coach. He has been penciled in on every line by different people here. Personally I think he plays top 6 and gets PP time but with who is the question.

^^ agree with Byrddog, who knows.


If I were to guess, I'd say he starts off on the 2nd line:
Wilson - Roy - Jokinen

Not to pile on but I too agree. We don't have a clue yet.

I guess a good comp is his year with Winnipeg last season. He's projected to be a 3C here as well. That's about all I got.

I'll guess:

Neal-Ribeiro-Smith
Wilson-Roy-Jokinen
Cullen-Jarnkrok-Stalberg
Bourque-Gaustad-Nystrom

Then Fisher comes back and all hell breaks loose

12 goals and 19 assists for 31 points while playing on our third line with some second team PP minutes. He will probably play in 65 games or so.

He was better last year in Winnipeg - so who knows. I'm still a little puzzled by the whole Roy-Ribiero-Jokinen thing.

I don't think we see Smith and Neal on the same line.

Neal-Ribiero-Wilson
Smith-Roy-Cullen
Jarnkrok-Jokinen-Forsberg
Bourque-Gaustad-Nystrom

Stalberg is the odd man out as is Clune.

I agree, I don't think we have a clue.

Even the combos in training camp last year that were standouts, either didn't exist in the regular season, or just dissipated into nothingness........

Exactly one game after everyone settles into some very nice chemistry. Book it.

Nice support player. I like his hustle. Thinks the game fairly well. Guess it comes with the territory of being a veteran of this game. Don't think his hands are where they used to be, but I think another assessment at the 20 game mark might yield more conclusive analysis.

Solid vet so far, no glaring mistakes.
Likes to shoot and hopefully they'll start going in.

I suspect he's our CORSI leader.

He's been noticeable on the ice, in a good way.

I love his hustle, he never gives up on the play. Glad to have him, perhaps in addition to jam and cotton candy we need to get him some waffles.

He's a good fit and has been a steady presence in the lineup so far. Would actually like to see him get some more offensive opportunities if our top lines don't start putting more pucks in the net.

I really liked Olli when he played for the Jets. His first season was a bit of a downer, but his second season you really saw what he can do.

Plus there are all the funny GIF's of him!

The entire third line is killing it in the Corsi perspective. Jarnkrok is actually the sole leader in that department (not counting d-men, where Ryan Ellis is sailing on unreal numbers on the strength of an extremely sheltered workload)

Anybody else who likes Olli's mullet? I Think it's the best in the League.

It's pretty great, makes him look faster with those locks blowing out the back of the helmet

Took my 14yo son to a practice and the first thing he said was "is that the waffle guy!". He was so excited to see him up close. He may not have a ton of points but he has been a very good player on the ice. I have yet to see him make a bad turnover and his PK ability is very good. We will look back and say that 2.5m was well spent on him this season.
