I think it's quite simple what happened to those two.
They are middling (Jokinen) or poor (LaRose) offensive players whose stats were inflated by playing with Skinner or Staal.
When you play those two together on the same line with an AHL winger in Bowman, they aren't going to do much. I've yet to see a line with either Jokinen, Ruutu, or LaRose as its best player that has not sucked. They are complimentary players (or just plain garbage in the case of LaRose).
Skinner got concussed and has a bad attitude and an unwillingness to change his game on top of it. Jordan hasn't had anyone half decent to play with since Skinner's concussion.
JR's biggest mistake outside of the defense is expecting clowns like Dalpe, Boychuk, Bowman and Welsh to do anything.
