I actually was hoping the Penguins would get him. They actually got him on the super cheap, less than what he was making before, so its definitely a good deal. He does have some grit, will hit, has gotten into some fights before and does have the ability to score 10-20 goals. And he's young, only 26. Good fit to play with Sutter. We'll see how he plays, but I think he's fair equivalent to Tyler Kennedy for much less money. I think its a good signing. No way, he plays on the 4th line if he is up on the team. If D'agostini plays with Sutter all year on the 3rd line, he will score more goals than the entire 4th line (that's how poor the 4th line is in goal production).
My thinking is, do we really need Tanner Glass and Harry Zolneircyzk? To open up some space, I would throw in Tanner Glass in the upcoming Matt Niskanen trade.
I would make the following moves:
Trade Niskanen, and Glass
Resign Jeffrey, and Zolneicyzk
Is Jokinen the answer on the 3rd line or should they go after somebody like Damien Brunner? Who would you rather have?
