Hearing Jokinen, Wallace to go on waivers at noon.

What an amazing move that would end up being if Lou picks up Jokinen and STILL manages to get a top line forward/decent to high level return for a potential defenseman package.

 

My thoughts?

Holy crap, I'd put a claim in him just so no one else gets the Marty Killer...

Wouldn't someone else be able to get him first? Say, Nashville? (How many forwards have they picked up?)

Well we could use the shootout help. That's for sure.

 

Still though a Tallinder + Jokinen deal couldn't have been accomplished? I hope this isn't "sounds too good to be true" situation.

Anyone below us in the standings has the ability to claim him earlier than we do. The waiver order works backwards from the standing. 30th to 1st.

Good point by @bassmanfloyd: The #NJDevils already have 50 contracts so they'd have to move someone if they wanted to claim Jokinen.

By my count, the #NJDevils have the 16th waiver claim. So half the league will get a stab at Jokinen before they could.

It's just a hypothetical. The consensus by fans to my knowledge has basically been all season that a defenseman should be moved for a forward and Tallinder is the most expendable one we have.

 

Also the Devils need to waive someone as well? OK then goodbye Barch, Pesonen or Kostopolous

He's wrong.  The Devils are at 48 contracts.

I figured, more then likely you, would know lol I just didn't get a chance to ask before you answered. I thought it was mentioned the other day in another thread they had 48.

there's no way we land him, out of 16 teams in front some will pick him up for sure.

In a perfect world...if we DO land him. I'd love to see these lines:

 

Joki-Lokti-Kovy
Elias-Zajac-Clarkson
Zubrus-Henrique-D'Agostini
Poni-Carter-Bernier

Baby Gio and YaYo would become your extras at center and LW respectively. That depth we would have suddenly becomes unreal.

The Devils don't want him.  Their left wings are set.  Plus he's got a fairly sizable contract for next year.

We have over 32,000,000 in cap space. I think we could afford Jussi Jokinen and re-sign our key players.

Carolina's looking to shed payroll next year. Taking back Tallinder doesn't help that.

If he's still available - it would be so tempting.  Sometimes that's when Lou purposefully won't make the grab.  He hates it if it's too easy.

 

Maybe the rumor is going out to get some offers?

It's not a rumor, he's on waivers as of noon.
