I disagree.. vehemently.

Jokinen scored more than each Sedin yes, but if you look at points to dollars it's pretty much accurate.

Add that on to the fact that Jokinen scored all those points in the Southeast division, in which players offensive numbers are well-documented to be inflated compared to players whose divisional rivals are tougher defensively, and the fact that he has now left a second team under a dark cloud, and I'm not sure I'd give one Sedin for Jokinen.

EDIT: Completely misinterpreted JonnyC83 (see below), just keep scrolling folks.. nothing to see here.

This thread is a joke -inen.
I didn't have the Sedin part there, because I agreed with that he couldn't bring back both.

And he should be a pretty wanted commodity, since he is good, and there isn't that many in the league that can do the same.

If I understand correctly, that's what he's saying.

To put it visually:

Sedins > Ballard/Boynton = Jokinen

That seems about right. Now, Jokinen over a single Sedin is a different story. Personally, I'd take Jokinen over one Sedin, because the Sedins work their best together and Jokinen has had comparable seasons with no linemates to speak of. But, its really a toss up seeing as we don't know how the twins perform apart for extended periods of time.

I read "draft" and thought "deadline," I thought the poster was implying that Jokinen's worth is closer to the proposed Sedins deal than to what he went to Phoenix in exchange for.
