Makes the move for Loktionov a bit of head scratcher, though. He's redundant at this point. He won't get much of a shot at center or any other forward position. I'd still like to see what he can do, but I have no idea who he could possibly replace. Everyone else has a defined role.
I think Ponikarovsky was a trade of opportunity as much as anything. I'm not sure who called who, but I bet it only happened after the Tangradi trade went down.
