    Jokinen is heading to Montreal. I can guarantee it. The first round pick, Higgins and Grabovski are gone. I would prefer a top d-man prospect instead of Higgins but Florida needs at least a top 6 forward to fill the hole created by Jokinen.

    I will miss Higgins and his work ethic but i know i will love Jokinen even more and he is a guaranteed 40 goals scorer with a team like Montreal.

    Please good god let the B's make a deal for this guy.  He fits the Bruins type player to a T.   

    What I would want:

    16th Overall, Zach Hammill (8th overall last year) Alberts and Kobasew for Jokinen

    Gives them a top six forward cheap (2.75 mill), top four D man, 16th pick and good young talent at center.  But thats a pipe dream.

    What it would probably actually take

    16th Overall, Bergeron and Sbotka for jokinen

    I dont think i would make the above trade unless it looked more like this

    16th Overall, Bergeron Sbotka and Hamill for Jokinen and RFA Jay Bouwmeester.
    I would hate to see Bergeron go, but if we could acquire both those guys and give Boumeester 6.5 mill a year extension, the Bruins would instantly become cup contenders.
