You really have to ask that with Murray as the coach? 3+ years of Murray and you still think a skilled player will perform in a 3rd line role?

Fraser has been a nice surprise, I hope he can keep it up. He's what the Kings with Murray need in their bottom six, not Loktionov.

If Loktionov impresses in a top 6 role, Lombardi would have to move Penner, Kopitar, Richards or Gagne to make room. Do you really see that happening? People love to rip on Penner, but Penner has legit top 6 talent and Loktionov is still very young. No reason to get rid of depth to make room for Loktionov.
