I have no idea... Kane and Jokinen have not worked well...
Some of it is chemistry and some of it is just Jokinen has had a bad year.

If I was Noel I'd be doing this when everyone is healthy:

Ladd-Little-Wheeler
Kane-Antropov-AAA
BBB-Jokinen-Wellwood
Wright-Slater-Peluso

Start off Burmistrov in BBB slot and as Noel gains more confidence and Burmistrov plays more within the parameters created by Noel you can switch him and Miettinen.

Jokinen played his best with Wellwood and Kane plays well with Antropov and Burmistrov.


EDIT:
In the end, the problem is that Antropov, Miettinen, Burmistrov, Jokinen and Wellwood are all third line players. And although Antropov and Burmistrov are really good third line players, the team needs at least one more top6er to work and lose one of the above (my vote is on Mittens).

Mietinen. Idk what he brings to that 2nd line at all.. He has had a bazillion wide open net opportunities; only to shoot it right at the goalie. Very frustrating to watch.

The bad pass to Jokinen that hit the back of Jokinen's skate when he should have shot sums up Mittens lack of hockey IQ.

I think it would be clear to even a casual hockey fan that neither Mittens or Jokinen have any business playing on a line with Kane. Mittens is clearly a borderline NHL'er and Jokinen is clearly a 3rd line centre at best.

Miettinen has no business being anywhere near the top 6. Having said that, I thought the Kane-Jokinen-Mittens line showed more today than they have in awhile.

Nah, he's no more "horrible" than fan favourites like James Wright and Jim Slater. The problem is that, for whatever reason, teams have tried to utilize him as a 2nd line playmaker for his entire career.

Miettinen is a solid third line player, preferably on a third line that's constructed more as a scoring third line than a shutdown line.
