I keep hearing these Pushkarev comparisons, but that is a completely bogus comparison. I followed a ton of Hitmen games when Pushkarev was on that team. Getzlaf, Ladd and Pogge were also on that team. Pushy was always a one man show, and no he didn't rip up the W. He was exciting in his rushes and dangles up the ice, but never did he resemble a complete player. He was a home run or strike out hitter if you will. Always. Loktionov has a bunch of those skills, but he plays the game with his team mates. Take the time to watch him before making the comparison to Pushkarev, they are totally different players. For starters, passing is Loktionov's strong point, something that was totally foreign to Pushkarev
