The Panthers again are using Jokinen as trade bait. Reportedly, a dozen teams have inquired and the Panthers would want a first-round pick in any package.
“We haven’t made the playoffs here, so bottom line is we’re looking to improve our hockey club,” Panthers GM Jacques Martin told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. “Is that with Olli back here or Olli not back here?”
Martin hasn’t been shy about criticizing Jokinen in the post-season. For more, the Sun-Sentinel provides this audio from an interview a few weeks ago, and George Richards wrote a feature piece on the captain’s trade value earlier this week in the Miami Herald.
