The Devils had to make room for Ponikarovsky, who is replacing Zubrus' spot on their roster, so Loktionov was the logical casualty for reassignment.
Maybe I am wrong on the timing, but I could have sworn the Devils traded for Poni before they called up Lokti, which would lead me to believe that he just didn't fit their schemes for the short practices he may have had with the team.

Please correct me if I am wrong here.
