Maybe read through the rest of the thread and you'd see I posted this:

The reason we couldn't get anything at the time was because teams didn't know what even they had, nevermind trading for someone else. Likely the same issue with Loktionov, only we could keep him on the farm without waiving him. After training camps were done and teams had a chance to play a few games they could see if they had any holes or if any injuries occurred. I just didn't think it'd be us that had the injury woes forcing a trade for a D-man.
Timing has as much to do with what you can get as anything. Of course we couldn't get anything in the middle of camps, a few days before the roster cut off. A few games into the season though, and maybe someone would have needed him. Such as us apparently.
