Are we Detroit? No. We have no reason to use Lokti on the 4th line after two straight seasons cut short due to injury. Also, him on the 4th line means a very soft 4th line. I'll pass.

Either let him develop in the AHL and have a year where he stays healthy (knock on wood) and continues to progress or move him to LW at the AHL level and groom him to replace Penner next off season. 4th line minutes in Lokti's case do no good.
