Jussi Jokinen is back in Raleigh again following his eight-game contract with Karpat of the SM-liiga.
He joined some Carolina Hurricanes teammates on the ice Monday at Raleigh Center Ice. Jokinen had to return to North America because of tax reasons and he's not very optimistic about a new CBA being agreed to quickly. "It's tough to say," he said. "I think right now both sides are pretty far away. That's the realistic part of this. I don't think it's looking too good right now."
