I would be severely pissed if Loktionov is dealt. I think he has made great strides already this year and will be a really effective player. If he's dealt, prepare for Moulson-type angst being expressed on this board for years, IMO.
It would be worse than that, Loki is a mini Pavel Datsyuk in the making.

There are things he does in the game that look like Pavel. Plus Loki is slowly proving he can play at this level.

When Schenn was dealt (regardless of opinion) he had not proven he could be an NHL player. Vey has not proven anything I would not mind losing him.

Pavel Datsyuk only scored 35 points his first full season, Give Loki at least 100 NHL games before writing him off.
