I understand where you're coming from, but at the end of the day we'd be in the same position as LA.

Is Loktionov really any better than Z-Bad, JOB, Regin, Grant and Da Costa? Spezza, Smith and Turris have three of our centre spots locked down. Even with injuries, we have MORE than enough Centres

If he's not going to displace any of our current prospects, then why waste the pick? We can find a good player in the draft with the 5th rounder, especially the way that Brian Murray has been lighting it up.


Now, if it was a good RW prospect hitting the waiver wire like...say....Grabner did a couple years ago...
