Unless for some strange reason I don't know of Canes fans wanted him gone, this is a great deal.

Great signing for the entire league. Hopefully sets the bar for that type of talent so we don't see over payments on average players.


Great signing for Carolina as well.

He actually took a $375,000 (or thereabouts, don't exactly know how to calculate QOs) dollar pay-cut off his qualifying offer in the first year. Rutherford tried to do the same with Ruutu last year but Ruutu wouldn't budge off it.

Great signing for both parties. I hope Jokinen finds a permanent home for his career in Carolina.

Good signing. Always seemed like a really great guy - it's nice to see him fitting in so well in Carolina.

Hard to get a player that can play all F positions, pk, pp, shootouts, and win faceoffs for that price... He might not be great in anything but shootouts, but I love his versatility and attitude

Hopefully he can bring back his regular season production. Carolina seems like the right environment for him.

Good for him, he earned it.

He should've tried to go for 5M$/per, though

Rutherford continues to save NHL careers around the league...Jokinen was a warrior in the playoffs.

This is great news as a Canes fan, I too also hope this sets the bar. Also, I ma pleased to see Jokinen took a pay cut rather than test the market and inevitably getting a better deal by some team. Kudos Jussi

Great signing for Carolina. He was great during the playoffs and if he can carry that into next season the team will look good. Glad to see him finally settled somewhere.
