Antti Miettinen's last two seasons in the FNL, at the age 21 and 22:

2001/2002 .. 56 games: 19 goals - 37 assists for 56 points (08 .. 2-4 for 6 points in the playoffs)
2002/2003 .. 53 games: 25 goals - 25 assists for 50 points (10 .. 1-7 for 8 points in the playoffs)

Including MVP honours in 2003.

Jussi Jokinen's last two seasons in the FNL, at the age 19 and 20:

2002/2003 .. 51 games: 14 goals - 23 assists for 37 points (15 .. 2-1 for 3 points in the playoffs)
2003/2004 .. 55 games: 15 goals - 23 assists for 38 points (15 .. 3-4 for 7 points in the playoffs)

Add Miettinen's superior defensive game and his ability to give bone crushing hits, how can Jokinen even be considered the better player? Maybe I am forgetting something though, but, please clarify on that.
