Jokinen is a great example of a player in a similar situation. Obcourse I am the only one that saw this as a very logical comparable.
I don't know at all what Barkovs character is like, but I never liked what little heart I saw in Jokinen. He seemed at times as good as Sundin, but never put it together mentally. Seemed flaky. Like a lesser Kovalev. Someone who never put all their tremendous skill to use for more then a week or two at a time. If Barkov could be as skilled as Jokinen, hopefully he has more heart and determination to be a great player then Jokinen did.
