Proposal: Jokinen to Flyers

since the flyers might need a center if JR doesn't heal up in time, how about:

Jokinen for Boyd Kane and a 2nd rounder this year? maybe another pick to even up?

just a thought so flame away.

How magnanimous of you! :-)

I agree. An AHL player and a second-round draft pick seems rather think for a young, up-and-coming player like Jokinen.

I have said it and argued all along that Jokinen is one guy I would be willing to move some youth for. He is "young" himself at only 25 and has already established himself in the league. He also is a guy who knows how to play under a task master, much like Hitch, because his game rounded out while playing under Keenan. Up until that time he was considered much of a bust.

It is sort of funny when you think of it this way. You think Clarke is bad, how about Milbury??

24-Jun-00: New York Islanders traded Olli Jokien and Roberto Luongo to the Florida Panthers for Mark Parrish and Oleg Kvasha.

How bad of a trade was that?? Okay, anyway. I think I would be willing to move maybe Richards and another prospect or pick. I am even more likely to do it if Roenick is retiring.

At that point we would still have a roster spot for 1 center for Carter, the year after next.

2004/2005
Jokinen
Handzus (only 26 right now)
Primeau
Sharp

2005/2006
Jokinen
Handzus
Carter
Primeau

Still look pretty solid down the middle. Richards could move to wing as could Sharp, if we decide not to move him, but I wouldn't mind finding Roenick's replacement moving some youth in an area that we would immediately replace.

As much as I hate Clarke, he is a far better GM then Mad Mike. I still ponder how this guy keeps his job.

Was it considered lopsided at the time. Obviously now, with the talent of both these guys, it looks insane, but if it was really so nuts at the time, don't you think they would have ended up on better hockey club?

Any trade can look nuts when you look back at it... just look at the original Lindros deal
