Nokeliainen IMO is way behind both of them at this time.
The three of them actually formed an awesome line at the U-18 WJC. Tukonen was the one reputed to have the highest upside, Nokelainen was the sure thing, and Korpikoski was the dark horse/wildcard.
Nokelainen probably has fallen behind the other two (though who knows what will happen in the future), because the poor guy has gotten nailed with knee injuries. Then again, he's the only one who's seen any significant time in the NHL yet.
