As much as I don't agree with Button too often, there may be some validity to his claim. Jokinen was suppose to be the answer in Phoenix where he was gawd awful and again failed to develop any chemistry with Doan who is a pretty darn good player himself.

That said, sometimes players just click with certain guys and not with others. Simply putting two very good hockey players together doesn't guarantee immediate chemistry. Here's hoping that OJ and EK can surprise and put some critics (myself included) to rest.

Sometimes the idea of "chemistry" is really subjective. Watching clips of Joki over the summer a lot of them talk about "amazing chemistry" between the two, while talking heads now talk about it being absent... Truth is probably somewhere on the middle and depends on the day.

Jokinen 0.618

After 5-10 games, we should have an idea if this line will work and produce at the rate many of us hope.
Better production than Kane / Burmi / Welly is all I want.

As for chemistry, it's a two-way street. Either it will happen with Kane or it won't.

The time with Iginla (although that looked good to me on paper) and Doan don't really have any bearing on this time with Kane. For better or worse.
