Apologies for just raw quotes, but I'decided to rather just get this out there than be fancy at this point in time....
Vinny Prospal, who played a half-year with Jokinen in
Marian Gaborik, who played in the West while Olli was East : “I don’t know that much about him but….it’s gonna be a different look, hopefully we can click and he’ll be a big part of our team. He’s a strong center, high-scoring, should be a good combo. Hopefully (chemistry’s) not going to take that long. He’s a strong guy who finishes his checks, he can definitely put the puck in the net and on the sticks as well.”
Chris Drury: “We can’t just rely on Gabby every night. (Jokinen)’s been around the block. He’s proven…He has a heckuva shot, he always can open up for one-timers. Even though he’s big, he’s a good skater and can find the holes, and he’s pretty good on faceoffs.”
