Bure almost always had more goals than assists. Jokinen almost always has more assists than goals.

You typically aren't selfish when you're getting 50+ assists in a season. I think the difference in Jokinen's play is when he feels like he has real support to setup his linemates and when he feels like he doesn't. Now, I'm not saying that his feeling bears a real relationship to reality, because clearly Doan and Iginla should constitute real support, but it's just what I interpret from his stats. And who knows? Maybe the Eastern style of play suits his game better.
