    Olli Jokinen headed to NYR? (CONFIRMED)

    Jokinen and Prust for Kotalik and Higgins.

    There has to be more to this for the Flames than just these two deals. Are they going to be making a pitch for Lecavalier or Kovalchuk?

    What the heck? That's a nice deal for the Rangers to be honest.

    PS That should answer some more questions about Olli Jokinen and his character.

    Yeah, I think the Rags win this, though Jokinen hasn't been much of a prize recently either.

    This is a clear handsdown win for the Rangers. Dump some future cap for an upgrade at center, even if it is a slight upgrade

    What I don't understand is why the Flames would want Kotalik and his salary going forward when Jokinen's salary would be coming off the books. If he's that much of a disruption, put him on waivers and get rid of him, but to take on Kotalik's salary is a head scratcher. Also, Higgins has been a horrendous bust for the Rangers, why would the Flames be any different?

    Odd, odd day for Sutter. He may have set himself up to be fired soon.

    Time will tell...
    For now I agree with you guys, this looks like a good deal for the Rags and Sutter may have just ended his own tenure as GM.

    To me it looks like Calgary is blaming their recent skid on the dirty laundry in the room. Well today they cleaned that laundry and got a bunch of mediocre players in return.

    Let's see if this "team concept" will work. Personally, Calgary gave up a lot of talent and didn't get an abundance of it back.

    That's an interesting theory to be honest. Jokinen is the black plague and Phaneuf was apparently they devil, so let's see what happens now. Everyone should remember this isn't knee-jerk, Sutter said he'd been working on the Phaneuf deal for 7-10 days, so Iginla knew all about it - and obviously gave it the thumbs up.

    Sutter should be thankful that Kotalik isn't letting him shoot himself in the foot.

    RUNOUR (PER TSN): Jokinen + Prust (CGY) for Kotalik + Higgins (NYR)

    This just in, kiddies...

    EK is also reporting it now, too:

    I think Sutter has lost his mind a bit... holy desperation, Batman! Why would anyone trade for Kotalik's contract?

    EDIT: Eep, I see asq2 got it already... my bad. Merge, mods! Smile

    I don't mind trading Jokinen.... I just don't get taking Kotalik back in return.

    CGY is panicking, big time. These are decisions that will hurt the franchise for years to come. When CGY goes out in round 1 or 2 this year, it will be Sutter's head.
