The literal only problem I can see with Loktionov playing center is the faceoffs, and I'm not convinced that's an enormous issue. Faceoffs are the "big new thing" this year and once again, like blocked shots last year, they're turning out to not mean a whole lot.

A blocked shot, like a won faceoff, is not a bad thing. But blocking a shot (and winning a faceoff) does not affect the game enough that it should be focused on over goals.

Loktionov has the potential to pretty drastically affect the Devils' offense in a positive way next season, and that is WAY more important than any marginal drawback he'd bring with his faceoffs.
