Is there really a need? The team was good enough to make the playoffs last year and then that happened... But still The team will be almost exactly the same and could possibly have a full season of Loki as well, so I don't really see how and NHl vet is needed as long as Hickey, Deslauriers, Loki pick up the slack from the lose of Elkins, Moller...

Thing I've been wondering is what this does to the center position in Manchester and Loki. Loki is a natural center but with Kopitar and Richards signed long term the emergence of Lewis, as well as Richardson being a center as well, where does Loki fit in? Then look at who's expected to be in Manchester and there's a lack of skilled natural centers beyond Azevedo. Loki's best chance to make the Kings would seem to be on the wing, but again consider that Manchester is pretty stacked on wings with Kozun, Holloway, King, and Toffoli. It'll be interesting to see what happens with Loki and where he ends up playing and what position.
