This is Loktionov's time to shine. He needs to take advantage.
To what end? He's far too skilled to be a third line center and there is no future with the Kings at 1st or 2nd line slot. He's given every indication that he doesn't like playing wing. I can't see them bringing him up for what might be 2 or 3 games, that won't help his trade value.
That's the only option he has at this point, is a future as a 2nd line center with another team.
If anything, Richards or Carter will slot the 1st line for a few games, it shouldn't be longer than that and Kopi's knee might be ready by the 18th or whenever it is the puck drops.
