Olli Jokinen plans to stay out of the exodus of playing overseas for at least a few more weeks.
"There are a lot of leagues in Europe and that could be an option we have to start looking at some point, but not right now," he said. "The middle of next month is the first deadline for me. I think in a month or so, you're going to probably see which direction this is going to go. To see if there's going to be any hope or no hope." Jokinen said that he doesn't want to sit around for too long, especially since he played for a team that didn't make the playoffs.
