You seriously think Lokti deserves to be out there in the 3rd period in a tie game taking defensive zone face-offs?

I like his offensive game as much as the next guy, but lets be real here. TM has a defense first philosophy and he's not going to put a C out there in crunch time who can't win a faceoff, especially in the defensive zone. Hence the comment about Zeus being on the same line to take the faceoffs.
Pretty much. Loktionov's gonna be real good -- once he improves in the Faceoff circle and his defensive coverage.
