Arnott's work ethic and compete level are beyond reproach.

Jokinen is younger and a bit more talented, but he takes a lot of nights off and doesn't even come close to providing the grit and leadership that Arnott did. Offensively Jokinen might slide in easily for Arnott but everything else about Jokinen's game is the polar opposite of what Arnott brought to the table.
