How is your logic different for Loktionov than Bernier? If Bernier should at least fetch a 1st, then shouldn't Loktionov at least fetch a 5th?

I agree that he is worth more as a player, but according to Lombardi, he is a flight risk prospect who could only warrant a 5th, because his contract is up at the end of the year and maybe headed for the KHL.
