Ollie Jokinen question

theres still lots of talk about a few teams (not oilers) going after jokinen. im sure the price is pretty high but i dont understand why we wouldnt be one of the teams in the hunt. a signed player without a NTC to stop him from coming here who is a clear first line guy.

anybody have any theories as to why we wouldnt be in the hunt? (unless KLowe is being completely quiet about it??)

If Jokinen is available, Lowe is in the hunt. Just because its not reported by the "insiders" from all the trade deadline shows doesn't mean GM's aren't talking about anything and everything.

yeah thats sort of what im hoping too - i would way rather see him overpay with an extra prospect in a deal for jokinen than losing out on hossa even after we throw an extra 1.5 million per season at him than the other teams..

Just remember guys, who called, expected, or even considered Lowe trading for Pronger.

If there was any truth to Florida not wanting to pick up Salary for Jokinen, then we are a contender. Problem is, we'd have to find a way to fit it under the cap without money going back. Roloson would have to move first.

It also gives us one hell of a bargaining chip in the offseason to improve somewhere else in Shawn Horcoff.
