Pending a trade call.
CAR trading Jussi Jokinen to PIT for a conditional pick. Trade call pending. CAR is taking back some money in deal. #tradecentre

Via Seth at Empty Netters, Jokinen has won 168 out of 283 faceoffs (59.4 %) this season.
He has 6 goals and 5 assists in 33 games this season. He's currently signed for next season at $3 million, but apparently Carolina will be paying some of that.
EDIT: The trade is for a conditional sixth- or seventh-round pick.
EDIT 2: More info from Bob McKenzie: "If Jokinen plays 50 per cent of PIT 2013 playoff games AND PIT wins the CUP, CAR gets a 6th round pick from PIT… If Jokinen plays 25 per cent of PIT 2013 playoff games AND PIT goes to Cup final, CAR gets 7th round pick from PIT."
So…. if neither of those conditions are met, he was free?
