Any fan of a playoff team, do you see your GM trading for Jokinen?

Jokinen has been terrible this year. He was hurt and terrible two years ago in Winnipeg. He had an okay-but-nothing-like-his-prime year last season. Unless he starts producing, (and on this Toronto team? LOL.) I find it hard to believe ANY team, let alone one that’s playoff bound, will want Olli dragging their team down. His relative corsi numbers are not particularly good either.

Maybe a Boston or some team that still thinks “Grit” and “toughness” and other buzzwords are worth building around. Otherwise, I can’t see any top contenders looking in his direction.

If Leafs paid most of his salary I could see a team taking him as a depth player in case of injuries in playoffs maybe be for a 7Th round pick.
