From what I've comprehended.

Loktionov is almost like a blend between Josefson and Tedenby. He's got the offense and the vision with some IQ. His defensive game isn't anywhere near Josefson's though.

He is best suited as a center in the top six, apparently trying him at LW has failed.

Based on that, if he gets called up, I think it would be best if we see:

Henrique-Zajac-Kovalchuk
Elias-Loktionov-Clarkson
Zubrus-Josefson-Butler
Carter-Gionta-Bernier

Hell, if you want, switch JJ and Loktionov to see who fits better. To me, it just gives us one more option, and I'm fine with that. I'd rather experiment with these low-risk players than jumping the gun and trading Tallinder or a defender for a forward right away. I'd rather wait to do that until everything else fails.
