Depending On Jokinen

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,

As Olli goes, so will the team.

Same goes for Sutter, who has tied his fate as GM to the 31-year-old Finn.

If Jokinen can mesh with anyone on the top two lines — on Saturday, he opened between Tanguay and Iginla as expected — the Flames are likely to boost the offence to get them in the playoffs.

If he continues to flounder, as he did last year before being traded, the Flames will miss the playoffs again, and Sutter will most likely be replaced by Jay Feaster.

It’s really that simple.

Arriving a few weeks early to register his kids in school, Jokinen appears fit and sports a good attitude.
