Wild Show Interest In Jokinen

via the Florida Panthers blog at the Sun-Sentinel,

The Minnesota Wild hasn’t tried to hide its interest in Jokinen. And it appears the Panthers are at the very least exploring the idea of trading him there by Tuesday’s 3 p.m. deadline.

Why?

Panthers director of pro scouting Bill O’Flaherty was at the Wild’s game in Chicago last night. He’s the third different Panthers’ representative to attend a Wild game recently—pro scout Jack Birch and director of player development Duane Sutter are the others—and combined, the trio as attended four of the last six Wild games overall. Perhaps the Panthers want to be very prepared for their Feb. 29 home game against the Wild. Or…....they’re checking out their options for Jokinen.
