The other one.

Jussi should be an upgrade over DJ/TK when it comes to centering Kunitz & Dupuis. Stop gap while Crosby recovers. May be a compliance buyout candidate in the summer.


God I hope its not the Pens compliance buyout. I figured they'd use that on a real bad contract they would sign.

if this means he takes Kennedy's spot on the top line until Crosby returns and is depth afterwards who fights for a spot in the lineup, I'm all for it.

I wonder what happens with him and his salary for next season or how they see him fitting.

1:25 a game PK, 59.4% faceoffs. Solid pickup. Maybe we can get Glass out of the lineup now.

Belated aprils fools joke on ignila from shero.

Shero walks into the dressing room and goes to iggy i know you have been playing with malkin but we got Jokinen to center you

This seems like it would push him out of the lineup again. I'm not sure why else we would make this move.

TSN tradecenter is saying money is coming back to the pens for taking him.

He took the 3rd most faceoffs this year and has the canes best %. Actually, he's been their best % guy since brindamour retired and was in top 3 or 4 for the last 5 seasons and was second after him those years too.

Definitely a center.

He does but also takes draws depending on his linemates. He was pretty good as a 2nd liner in Carolina until this year where he hasn't done much and seen a lot of 3rd line. Not a gritty player but does bring some skill. Pair with someone who can create some space for him to get into a scoring area and won't be bad as a stop-gap.

Bylsma says TK won't play center. Puts TK at center.

Bylsma says DJ is playing the best hockey of his career. He's immediately displaced by Jokinen.

Just a check-up. They must have caught something from Rossi.
