From Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch:
It was surprising how little interest Olli Jokinen drew this weekend. The Panthers ended up trading him to the Coyotes for two defensemen and a second-round pick. Lots of clubs wanted nothing to do with a 90-point scorer. "Last guy on the ice for practice and first guy off it," is how it was put to me by one NHL exec. (No, not a Blue Jackets' exec.) Howson acknowledged he made a pitch to the Panthers, but wouldn't reveal his offer.

Portzline does a good job of getting fans some inside information here. If Jokinen is indeed the last guy on and first guy off, then that, coupled with his lack of playoff experience, probably became a red-flag for many teams who initially coveted the big center.
