5 Possible Uses for Olli Jokinen
So, after several months of surgery, OT, and so on (I lost part of a finger at sea) I’m able to start writing regularly. This time, I think I’ll focus more on my team though- the Flames. So without further ado, somethings we could actually use Jokinen and his 5.5M salary for.
1. He could fill in at the gorilla exhibit at the Calgary Zoo when one of them wants the day off due to feeling a little homicidal.
3. He could go Tortorella on the press when Brent Sutter is questioned about ridiculous line combinations. Calgary’s equivalent of Larry Brooks wouldn’t stand up to him due to fear of being hit by a thrown barrell. Yes, that was the third “Jokinen looks like a monkey” joke in a row. I’m done now- promise.
4. Okay, I lied. Let’s pay him in bananas and kidnapped princesses. Cap space? No problem.
5. Use him in the AHL to help play with “development stalled” players. Wait- he’s doing that already? Shit, I’m out.
