Seems harsh on Loki
Lokti did not play the required number of games during the regular season and he did not appear during the Stanley Cup Finals. He doesn't qualify. Obviously, neither did Westgarth, but the circumstances are different due to his role, age, and locker room presence. He was a member of the club throughout the whole ride, he is a full-fledge member of the team, like Drewiske, and are purely NHL players, regardless of any remarks made about their talent or purpose. There are limitations to how many names they can have on the cup, and it is quite clear that Westgarth and Drewiske belong there over Loktionov. It would be like leaving off the backup goalie or something. They are part of the team any way you slice it. It is a tough slight, but Loktionov is the odd man out.

Not on the cup. That would be like putting Jack Johnson's name on the cup. They are buying him a ring, and he has full recognition from the organization, but they can't put his name on the cup.
