It's going to be funny to see what happens when he starts getting some shots to go in. He could really come alive because he thinks the game pretty fast - made some amazing passes this year. Real top line thinking - one or two steps ahead of everyone on ice. Surprised his linemates a couple of times.
I'm just spitballing here, but I think Lokitionov and Nolan would be a good match down the line. Nolan is a big man that has good speed, a good shot, and nice touch on his passes. Both seem to have a lot of hockey sense as well.
