Jokinen is the best center we're going to get without giving up the farm. He's a 2nd tier center like Gomez, Marleau, and Drury, but at least he won't command 7M like those 3 will/have. Obviously this may be a little premature, but I wouldn't mind him coming back for 4.5-5M for 3 or 4 years.

Why? Why would you want another upcoming Chris Drury? He's entering his unfavored years and hasn't been a consistently big player since playing on a low-pressure no-name team like Florida?

Please, save the cap space for someone else...

He's not a cancer. He's a guy that plays for his team and plays with energy. I still remember how disappointed he was when Dion, Jay, and Robyn weren't selected for Canada, even though he made team Finland. He thought the rest of the team let those guys down by playing poorly in December .

Good luck to Jokinen and the Rangers the rest of the way .
I would take Jokinen back in a second if his cap hit was $3.25 to $3.75 million. I don't think he'll take that big of a cut, though. I can see a cap hit of $4.0 million. May be a two year contract that pays $5 million the first year and $3 million the second.

If Jokinen really likes it here in NY and is willing to take a paycut, i would love to sign him then for five years at around 3.25-3.75 like you said. He'd be a great center for us.

However....knowing Glen Sather and FA i'd be hard pressed to believe that he'd get Jokinen at that price even if Jokinen begged for it.

by "here" he means Calgary...and I think he may be right...he, apparently, really loved it there and wants to live there permanently.

Why is everyone worried about resigning him or not? He's a rental! If he doesn't help us to make the playoffs, the whole point is moot.

Let's make the playoffs first, then worry.

Bolts are losing to the Isles as I speak. They will play us in less than 24 hours. This should be a win for us heading into the break.

Rangers need to play with the same passion as last night. Wear them down and show no mercy.

Did you guys notice, there were no breakaways last night? And very few odd man rushes against.

He's worked hard and his been a physical presence.
Yeah, higgins plays with effort, but he has a really bad shot so he can never finish

and both players are failing to produce on two different teams.

Btw, what's up with your guys' roster?

You have almost enough forwards for 6 lines.

I'd offer 1 yr @ 3.75M. Why not? We're not winning the cup until Drury and Redden are gone.

Actually, if they lose out on Kovalchuk, I'd be okay with a 2-year deal at that at amount per season, for a stopgap until Stepan is ready.

I don't want Joker long-term.

But I must admit, I like what he adds to the team.

Just goes to show you how talentless we are, I guess...
