Digging into the Jussi Jokinen for Mike Cammelleri trade

  Digging into the Jussi Jokinen for Mike Cammelleri trade The Edmonton Oilers traded free agent signing Jussi Jokinen, 34, for Los Angeles Kings free agent signing Mike Cammalleri, 35. Jokinen makes $1.1 million this year, Cammalleri $1 million. Meh.Jokinen looked like a decent-to-good signing when the Oilers brought him in this summer. He was 34, yes, and coming off a poor year, yes, but he’d been a strong player before then. Of course, none of that matters in a league where the performance of players can fall off sharply and quickly once they’re in their early 30s.

The Edmonton Oilers have acquired Mike Cammalleri from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for Jussi Jokinen . Cammalleri has three goals and seven points in 15 games this season, his second stint with the Kings after signing a one-year contract with the team on July 1.
