The main thing we want to see with Loktionov is him carrying the puck through center ice and attacking the opposition's blueline with speed. I am confident they could figure that out with he and Stoll on the same line.
Two things either he plays center and if he is not strong enough you send him down to get stronger. Or you play him on the wing and if he can not play wing and you want him on wing you send him down to learn how to play wing. Either way you do not changes things around for a player that is not ready to play in the NHL.
