Lokti at center with him at the wing would be worth a shot (like some people have mentioned already).
Agreed. Usually when people talk about Loktionov or Richards moving to wing on Kopitar's line the response is, that he can do much more as center. But Stoll really can't. He has no particular center attributes, he looks like a winger to me and he could be a decent one as well. I agree also with the idea to bring up Loktionov and finally give him the position that he would get next season anyway.
