Is Jokinen "Flamed Out"?

One question I've seen buzzin' a little lately is if our boy Jokinen can rebound to his 70+ point seasons. Actually, I feel like I've heard this topic for a few seasons now.

Markov - Emelin
Gill - Subban
Gorges(RFA) - Weber/Spacek

The odd part is that he was not rated as the top goalie prospect, but was in the top 5. He was taken as the Preds saw similarities between him and Lindback and Rinne, which bolds well for the team.

Next was their #52 pic...
