You gotta give Lokti a real shot. He's already asked for a trade. If he does well, maybe he sticks. It would at least up his trade value.
A like Loki too, but 'sticks' as what? He's far too skilled to be a 3rd liner and there is no future for him here 1st or 2nd line. He's given every indication that he does not like playing wing, his best hope to play where he is comfortable is via a trade to another team where he can be the 2nd line center. And I can't see him centering the top line, for what amounts to be 2 or 3 games. I wish he was more agreeable to switching to wing, because next year, there will be 2 openings.
Keep the Flyers together. They have chemistry and a healthy Gagne >>>>>>>>>> Penner.
Absolutely, 100% and Sutter is a LOT smarter than Murray who made the HUGE mistake of waiting 24 games before letting Richards and Gagne (and all the years worth of chemistry and great sucess they had in Philly) skate their first shift together. Then 1 game later Richards gets the head injury.
Gagne is healthy for the first time in 3 years and very motivated. Keeping him on the 3rd line is a waste of his talent, Stoll does not have the skill to feed off Gagne's speed like Richards can, esp given Richards can find Gagne in his sleep.
