I'm not sure what you are expecting from a top six forward. Since his big 09-10, Jokinen has had seasons of 52 points in 70 games and 46 in 79. If someone who can reasonably be expected to score 50+ points isn't a top six forward, who is?

And it's not like Jokinen is getting forcefed ridiculous minutes to achieve these numbers...he's averaged 17:13 and 17:40 the last two seasons, which includes a fair amount of PK time. Produces second line numbers getting second line ice time, but isn't a second liner because....why?
