lol. we were top 10 on faceoffs in 2008-09. trolling does take some knowledge.



That was 1 season, and just looking at the other 4 seasons since the lockout we have been either just ok or in the bottom 10.

lol troll? You seem to call everyone who doesn't agree with you or remotely criticize the devils that on this board constantly. I bet you would look great on the Devils Dancers with all of your team spirit. Also that way you can hit people here with your purse instead of calling people trolls on here.

Personally, (his total lack of playoff experience aside) I have always liked what he brings. He is a big center who pretty regularly put up ~70 points throughout most of his career, and on TERRIBLE teams ta'boot. Even looking at the guys last 2 years, he has put up over 50 points on two teams that have been within inches of finishing dead last in GF (IIRC Calgary was last and the Rangers we all know were TERRIBLE offensively *except Gabby*).

So to answer in short, yes, I would absolutely sign him for around 3-3.5 mil for a year or two. If for no other reason than the fact that any of the better options available to us are going to want far more money and for many more years. Getting Olli would give us an option that we could use for a few seasons to give Josefson some time to develop slower on the 3rd line and wouldn't prevent him from moving into the 2nd line spot in a year or two if he is ready. Having Plekanec would keep josefson on the 3rd line for many more seasons. It certainly wouldn't be a bad thing to have 3 good centers, but I would rather give our young guys that are cost controlled for a bunch more years the opportunity to cover our core positions so that we have the option to keep a guy like kovie or sign a big #1 defenseman if/when he becomes available to us.

... so yeah count me in the group of YES

It is kind of his fault that the Devils are out of the Playoffs and that the Flyers are still in. Maybe the Flyers should sign him if they trade one of their big contracts. Maybe if he misses a key shootout in Game 82, it will be good luck for that team. But anycase my answer is a 100% NO.

i think jokinen will have a bounceback season, fwiw, but his reputation as a bad locker room guy and general laziness aren't a good fit for this team.

i mean, if he wants a 1 year $750k deal, perhaps but even then i think it's just not the right mix.


I could book a "European Vacation" for about $745k less...

I'm not sure if it is wise to make fun of the Rangers for that. The next week the Flyers killed us in the playoffs and made us the 1st team sent home in the playoffs.


Who made fun of the Rangers? I made fun of Jokie. And thanks for the history lesson. I was wondering how the Flyers got in. :angry:

I've heard from other teams fans and two former teammates that he is 'cancer in the locker room'. I'd say, "NO".

Unless its for a "no one will sign me I'll play for 500k a year Nieds/McAmmond" type deal, no thanks. I'de much rather see a prospect like McIntyre/Josefson/Henrique take the spot on second or third line, atleast they will try.

As for not having a good face off center since Holik, I think you forgot Nieuwendyk. Although im not sure what the Devils face-off stats were for the year + change we had him, he was, in my opinion, the second best face-off center off all time, behind Oates.

If it weren't for the whole "cancer in LR" thing, I'd say a 1 year team-favorable cost contract wouldn't be a bad thing. Someone under that kind of contract who wants big cash would be forced to behave and produce or he'd be forced elsewhere.

Plus, on paper he's better than anything we've trotted out as a 3rd line C this year...we've had games where our back two centers have been "Special" Nieds and Pelley, who are not really offensive forces.

I guess I'd say proceed with caution, and make whatever deal you offer him team-friendly.

hell no. This guy is not to be relied upon. I couldn't believe when tortarella put him out in the 3rd spot in the shootout against the flyers in that playoff spot deciding game this year. He is not clutch. He is the exact opposite. If tortarella picks another guy there, Flyers maybe don't even get into the playoffs.
