Calgary Herald on Jokinen
Today my favorite newspaper wrote a front page article on the possibility of Florida's OlliJokinen coming to Calgary. Jokinen has two years left on a deal that runs around 5 million per season. He is also a centerman. If it is true that Daymond Langkow is going to sign with the Flames, i see little reason to trade for Jokinen. Why do you need to be paying 3 centermen over 5 million dollars? (speculation has Langkow making 20 million over the next 4 years.) But lets pretend the Flames do sign Langkow. This puts them at the cap of 50 milliion dollars. What would be the trade to make for Jokinen?
some defenceman making a lot of money (erikson, sarich, aucoin) or Wayne Primeau
