Note: As September rolls around and all this month we wanted to bring to your attention the Pass it Forward program which provides help to youth in Winnipeg who wish to play hockey but require aid in getting the necessary equipment. The program is in it’s 5th year, they have a website, an active twitter feed @PassItForwardca, and they are giving away a autographed game used stick. Be sure to check it out.

    I believe that Jokinen can have a bounce back season as well. I remember last year that hockey minds were saying “dont take a lot out of the shortened season” which i’ve kept in my mind, but apparently not too many other people have (see buyouts, UFA’s and RFA’s) Jokinen is only two years removed from a 61 point season. Im not saying he’s gonna put up those numbers, but he appears motiviated to improve on a terrible season.
    the “dont take a lot out of the shortened season” applys to some of these RFA’s that really havent proven much at the NHL level. Guys like Kadri should accept a bridge type deal and prove to management that he’s worth big money/long term. he had a great season last year but before that he had 19 points in 51 games total.
