Darryl: The Joker Is Staying


Well kind of...

http://www.calgaryherald.com/sports/hockey/calgary-flames/says+Flames+want+keep+Bourque+Jokinen/2443767/story.html

I don't know if this is a lot of hot air and just PR jargon considering the guy is still a member of the Flames, but Darryl Sutter announced that it is his goal to prevent The Joker from making it to unrestricted free agency and resign the Finn.  These statements were made on the record at the Flames Fan Forum yesterday and a full audiocast can also be heard at Fan960.com.  A lot of it seems like Darryl and Ken King just fielded questions from fans as simply a fan involvement initiative so I wouldn't hold too much to anything they said.  But a particular gem that the Herald article points out:

"We didn’t keep Jokinen over Cammi," admonished Sutter. "We got (defenceman) Jay Bouwmeester over Cammi."  (a statement which is true and today seems kind of ironic considering the scoring funk the Flames are in)

Take it for what it is...D.Sutt obviously won't recognize that he is not resigning a current player to fans.  But to say he is going to to do everything to prevent The Joker from reaching July 1 is kind of a bold statement.  Talk amongst yourselves...
