JOKINEN GONE, I HATE THIS TEAM HORRIBLE TRADE

JOKINEN TO PHOENIX FOR BUMS! AND A 49TH PICK


I GIVE UP WITH THIS ORGANIZATION


F THEM!

Keith Ballard D
Nick Boynton D

49th pick

Thats what the Panthers got for their captian. Niether are puck moving D men and they did not get a 1st round pick. This team is heading in no direction. It looks like they rushed this when they didnt have to do a thing with Jokinen. HORRIBLE TRADE, WORST TRADE IN TEAM HISTORY, I DIDNT THINK THAT WAS POSSIBLE AFTER THE LUONGO DEAL. F ALREADY IN THIS YEARS DRAFT.


MOVE THIS TEAM OUT OF SOUTH FLORIDA FIRE JM. THIS WAS A HORRIBLE MOVE. GOOD LUCK SCORING GOALS THIS YEAR! THERE WILL NOT BE MANY WITHOUT THE CAPTIAN!



BTW I CALLED IT! SEE DOOMSDAY THREAD!

The "captain" that had a -19 this year? The "captain" that managed 4 goals in our last 10 games when the pressure was on? The "captain" that led this team on the ice the last 5 years with no playoff showings, but a heaping amount of questions about the heart of the team?

It's time for the team to move in another direction. All of those rumors about getting a 1st rounder and a top line player were just that, they were rumors. Olli himself never showed the capability to be a top line captain, so why would another team give us that much?

whatever man. This organization has done nothing. Missed the playoffs 8 years in a row and it looks like it will be longer without our top goal scorer. Don't look for Horton to pick it up becuase he is no leader.


This team lacks a top goal scorer now and a leader.


Horrible!

I dont wanna hear ohh we have D now. Because it doesnt look like Bouwmeester is going to stay.

If you think Olli was a leader, you're nuts. How many years have we seen the team shut down and not try for weeks?? It's his job to get on guys, the coach can only do so much.

We've always needed a goal scorer, now we need one more. But Olli was never going to answer our prayers.

FloridaPanthers4ever said...

actually ur wrong. We needed one more goal scorer while Jokinen was here.


NOW THE TEAM DOESNT HAVE A FUCKING FIRST LINE.


DONT THINK BOOTH-WEISS-HORTON IS A TOP LINE BECAUSE ITS NOT!

Stanley C. said...

try to keep things a little more mature man...

yes, on the face, this deal doesn't look great. But think about it, as anonymous said, Olli's been our captain for 5 years and has done absolulty nothing. We've constantly given up 50+ shots a game, getting these 2 defenseman is a step towards correcting this. We lost one top-tier goaltender becuase of it, we don't need to lose another. We've had the scoring talent developing, it's time to hand it over to them to take this team over.

Ballard is only in his 3rd year, and played all 82 games last year and was a +7 on a mediocre-at-best Coyotes team. Boynton is a defensive defenseman. There could be a big upside to him.

Plus, you don't think that this is going to free up some money to go after one of the UFA's out there? Sure, it's not the best looking deal. But you knew Olli was going. Apparently they couldn't get the first rounder they were looking for, this may have been the best offer. Let it play out, October's a long ways out.

Bouwmeester is not going to sign. If you think he didnt want to be hear with jokinen here, think about how he feels with the top goal scorer gone now.

Bouwmeester is prob telling his agent that he definitly does not want to be in florida.


What direction is Florida taking? They dont have a top line now! They have way too many Dmen. Most of them r not very good.



I just dont expect Matthias to fill that 1st line C spot right away. This is how u ruin a guy. Just like Huselius. They wanted him to produce right away and then ended up trading him away.


This organization gets a F- since 1993

FloridaPanthers4ever said...

Yes you are right btw that FA is right around the corner.

Do you actually expect them to get a top line guy tho?

Look at last years signings. Enough said. This organization is cheap with Cohen at the helm.

Apparently you forgot about the goalie we traded for last off-season. Our "cheap" owner took on a top 5 goalie's contract and traded away draft picks, which last i checked don't have salaries.

That was essentially a free agent move

FloridaPanthers4ever said...

its ok. the two guys are in their final year of their contract.


we will prob fail to sign both guys we just traded for. its ok tho. Jokinen was not a leader according to all of u.

Stanley C. said...

Forgetting Vokoun, we signed Dvorak and Zednik last offseason. Zednik, as we all know, missed the last 3rd of the season. Dvorak missed 15 games due to injury. Beyond that, our young scorers missed time. Booth missed 9 games, McLean missed 15 games, Peltonen and Olesz missed 20+ games. Stumpel only played 52 games, he's had 50+ points 6 of the last 7 seasons. A lot of these incame late in the year when we were trying to make a push. We get a solid D behind our scorers and a healthy team, I don't see us having any problem making a good run next year, especially in our division.

The talent is there, Olli did nothing to lead it, Martin did nothing to coach it. But it's there.

Stanley C. said...

Obviously Jokinen led the team in scoring last season. If it were up to me, I'd rather have kept him for next year. But guess what, it wasn't going to happen. And I don't think we got a bad return.

ASponge said...

To make a similar parallel, remember how bad the Cabrera-Willis trade felt at the time? Then suddenly, things look a whole lot different.

I say, like anonymous and Stanley, that we should give these new kids a chance.

I'm not happy either, but let's not jump to immediate judgment.

"I GIVE UP WITH THIS ORGANIZATION"

Will you do us a favor and give up blogging, too?

Why do you think this is a bad thing... im 16 years old and i know that this was a good deal... Sure we lost our best offensive player but look who we have filling in for Jokinen...Mathias, Frolik, Repik Three Good Young Players... Our Defence is way better know with Jay B and Ballard AS the #1 Pairing... Bouwmeester will stay no matter what because he likes it in florida and Hes A Restricted Free Agent... Our Defense is stronger and better defensivly and now that our young talent in Horton, Weiss , Booth, Olesz Those guys will step up this year... im not saying floridas going to win the cup but we have a chance to win our division this year.. were not playing the crappy defensive style that JM wanted to play... DeBoer Will Play an offensive game which will put us in the playoffs... you cant give up on your team because of a trade... and honestly did you think we were going to get a Ringer Forward and a first round pick this year? Just For one player? you watch jokinen will do terrible in Phoenix this year and you'll see how good of a deal it was when were in the playoffs and phoenix is still in 13th place...
