Jokinen will absolutely need to provide some scoring depth if this team is going to make the playoffs - Ladd and Kane likely can't continue at this pace all year. The same could be said for Burmi although the expectations are obviously different.
The underlying numbers don't suggest an imminent down turn for Kaner. He is putting a lot of pucks on then and that should lead to scoring. He is working his way up to the point / per game threshold and that actually may be in line with his true talent.
