Ah, just the reason I keep the
Simmonds started 11 games alongside Kopitar on the top line. Just a few more than "a whole game or so"
Games #40, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64. That's 10 straight games on the top line dude.
Loktionov earned his spot in camp, got demoted and called back up. He earned it. Moller has done everything the organization has asked for almost 4 years. He's earned his shot.
Also, Simmonds plays a kind of game neither of those two do or really can, which makes Simmonds a force on a grinder line and Moller and Loki useless in the same role. Apples and oranges so while I feel certain instances (like D. King) warrant a call of 'haven't earned it!", the same doesn't apply with Moller or Loki so please don't lump them all into a category in which they don't belong.
