Playoffs or trade for Jokinen
TheFourthPeriod.com

Prior to the Olympic trade freeze, it was widely speculated that Winnipeg Jets center Olli Jokinen would be a sure trade target by the March 5 deadline.

Only two points from a wild card spot, the Jets have seen a resurgence under new head coach Paul Maurice, meaning trading Jokinen could be a higher risk than reward.

Sportsnet's Hockey Central analyst Doug MacLean believes that if the Jets fall out of a playoff race, Jokinen will be a definite trade target for the club.

The Vancouver Cancks could be a potential destination for the 35-year-old, as they are in need of reliable offence that Jokinen could provide.

The Finn is set to become an unrestricted free agent as of July 1 with a current cap hit of $4.5 million.

Jokinen has accumulated 13 goals and 19 assists in his 60 games with the Jets this season. He is currently a key part of the Finnish national team in Sochi.
