Quite a few people keeping saying that Jussi Jokinen isn't worth $3 million plus a season, but with another player, Stephen Weiss of Florida, re-signing for more than $3 million a year who has a smaller resume do you really expect Jokinen to give a significant discount to the Stars?

Jussi Jokinen: 163 Games - 103 Points (31 G - 72 A) - 0.63 points per game
Stephen Weiss: 115 Games - 69 Points (29 G - 40 A) - 0.60 points per game

yeah it sucks... normally Id say 3 mill+ for a 50 pt scorer? no way!
but It just so happens that 48 pts was pretty good for Dallas last year.. and we dont really have another player that can fill in on our top 2 lines...
Im sure I could find a couple players with better numbers then Jokinen playing for around 2.5 mill, but Its increasingly looking like Dallas is going to have some problems signing this guy..

Weiss is by far the better player, but he was slowed down by injuries.
Weiss can play ES/PP/SH plus is future captain material while Jokinen is close to a PP player who gets some ES-time too

oh and Jokinen / Dallas came to terms about the contract length now, so it's only the money they're talking about now

It's good to see all the really important details are hammered out, and it's just getting down to the minor stuff.
