Offensively Olli Jokinen at prime was pretty good player in weak florida team but even Jarmo Kekäläinen himself stated that Olli Jokinen as 1 year older wasn't near as good as Barkov especially in overall game where Jokinen was pretty useless. Olli Jokinen was early born and Barkov is very late born. There is almost calendar year difference in their draft years.
I would be disappointed if Barkov would have similar career as Olli Jokinen. But if Barkov can be similar offensive force as Olli Jokinen at prime for many years and play selke calibre of defense then i would be very pleased.
