He could have stayed with the Kings, but I believe the Org wanted him to break in as a legit top-6 guy, which he wasn't quite ready
to do last fall.

He clearly is enjoying a "growth-spurt" right now, and should be able to handle 2nd-line duties next season as a leading NHL rookie-of-the-year candidate.

I believe he has 70-point potential, and perhaps even more.

I'm looking for 50+ pts as a rookie next season as
a realistic expectation.

With Schenn and Loktionov coming on, we wil have a true 4-line team next season (which we've almost got this year).
Do you think that Lotki can fill that 3rd line center role? I would love it if he could, but he just doesnt strike me as a player that can last on a checking line. but I could be wrong.
