If absolutely nothing else, he could play better 4th line minutes than Barch, Sestito, or Pesonen and DEFINITELY help us with the shootout. Unless we have an internal salary cap there is no reason the Devils shouldn't claim him.

 

Does anyone know if buyout rules stayed the same? Can they buyout his contract next year if they decide this experiment didn't work and save a little cash?

Canes aren't able to spend up to the cap. They also have about $20 million tied up in Semin and the Staal brothers. To sign Semin to  $7 million deal they may have thought to themselves we can count it as $4 million (plus another contract to replace Jokinen) if we cut Jokinen. Its some kind of creative internal cap maneuvering.

 

That being said, he is obviously not SO good. But his 5 goals in 30 games are more than our parade of 4th liners have had in 3+ seasons combined.

I don't think he'll make it to us unfortunately.

He's also not having the best year and maybe since they activated LaRose today, they thought it was time.

If you're claiming him for him to play 4th line minutes, forget it, he makes $3M and is used to getting 18 minutes a game.  And yeah, buyout rules are the same, and the Devils could use an amnesty on him, but either thing would be a colossal waste.

Let's see.   We've got 8 D so they have 2 of the 3 scratch spots.

 

Kovy, Elias, Zajac, Henrique, Clarkson, Loki, Zubrus, Carter, Bernier, Gionta, Poni, Barch, D'Agostini, Greek Guy, Hypothetical Jokinen.

 

I think that's it, everyone else has options or is Sestito.

 

That's not *that* bad.   2 guys would need to be waived.   Greek Guy obviously, the next one would be a little sketchy.   Gionta doesn't deserve to be waived, he just shouldn't be playing C.

 

If they really need to clear a roster spot they can always invent an injury for Barch the way they have had phantom injuries for goons when they needed a roster spot in the past :lol:

Jokinen still has some step left in him. Loved him in Dallas. He's not a goon and he has some talent. Lou will likely pass on him as a result.

I actually think Lou would claim him, but its what everyone else said- he probably won't make it to us. I mean this guy's name at its mere mention has caused me to involuntarily twitch since 2009, so it would figure that the Rags will probably wind up with him lol.

I think I'd have to pull a lead pipe in a stairwell type deal if that happened. I'd have nightmares every night before playing the Rags. I don't think I'll ever remove the last few minutes of that game from my head. Frontal lobotomy, here I come!

Games 4 and 7... Been trying to forget 'em for 4 years. I truly wish I could burn that series from my memory, what an utter disaster.

Lou should pick him up for the simple fact that he's always had our number.

it didn't affect how much they were paying this year. If he had any value, they would've held onto him for at least a trade possibility this summer or something. He's fallen off

and so have the Canes. A few more losses like last night and it will be a good summer.
