I like Loki just as much as the next guy. There is a reason he was a bench player when Sutter got here.
Guys/ladies, potential is no longer a reason to give prospects Ice time on top lines with the Kings.
Loki has never even completed a year in the AHL(Kings fault).
We must remember Sutter likes to play a certain style of hockey. I am afraid Loki doesn't meet the criteria of Hockey.
Loki would be much better served in a system like the NYI or Philly.(IE wide open hockey).
The Kings have a top six Natural Center sitting on the second line (Jeff Carter).
The Kings are not going to put a guy with 59 career games and 14 points into their top six at the center position; on a cup defending team. Especially in a short season, two bad weeks can end your playoff hopes.
That is unfair to Current roster players, and also very unfair to ask Loki to carry that load.
