"He certainly didn't play to his potential in Calgary after being dealt for near the trade deadline last season. Jokinen had flashes of brilliance, but could not parlay a plum assignment as the No. 1 center for elite forward Jarome Iginla into headlining duty.
Now, he is being asked to be the set-up man for Marian Gaborik, who already has more than 30 goals and may play a style more compatible to Jokinen's game."
...in my opinion, there is absolutely no pressure on Jokinen in New York. The team already stinks and if he doesn't play well it doesn't really matter because he's gone at the end of the season which opens up $5 million in cap room.
...on the positive side, if he can come in here and give a lift the offense he will be much celebrated around the 'Most Famous Arena.'
Roarke also wonders what the acquisition of Brandon Prust will mean for Donald Brashear and Aaron Voros adding that Prust was making a name for himself in Calgary with his willingness to take on all comers in a bid to establish himself as a full-time player.
...i'd still like to see Voros have a place on this team, however, I'm hopeful that this move will mean a one way tickey out of New York for Brashear.
