Kings would offer Loktionov for a 1st rounder.

Why the Kings do it: Kings have locked up their C position 1 to 4 with Kopitar/Richards/Stoll/Fraser. And guys like Carter, Lewis and Richardson can all play C as well. Loktionov is not going to have a long-term future /w the Kings.

Why the Canucks do it: Realistically, that 1st is going to be late in the round. Loktionov is a skill player that can turn into a #2C if given the opportunity to play with other skill guys. If not, he can still be effective as a #3C as well. He needs enough ice time to flourish, and Cancuks can provide him the chance.
