He suffered from something a lot of young talented Kings draft picks suffered from... they were rushed to the Kings far too soon and it ruined their confidence. Had they been treated properly and spend a couple of years in the AHL to get their confidence and learn the system they would have been far better players
I never thought that Jokinen looked in great shape as a King. In fact we used to joke and call him Baby Huey....I know, incredibly offensive and in poor taste.
Can we still get Lauri Tukonen and Konstantin Pushkarev back? The time to strike is now! I think we can be a contender!
Saying that the Kings weren't close to becoming contenders when they acquired Ziggy is silly. Their offense was already booming with the likes of Donald Audette!! :wootrock:
Looking back at some Kings prospect, you really have to feel bad with how they were brought in. A few of those guys may have been terrific players if they were taken by the new Kings.
