Yet no other GM would. Seems to me that means that the Kings got market rate.

Smallish center. Good vision and hands. More of a playmaker than scorer. Can be shifty but easily knocked off the puck. A little fragile so far in his career. Good potential, could really be a steal if played in the right circumstances.
He only has two options basically on NJ, 4th line wing/center or 1st line wing with Kovalchuk/Zajac. Going off that the Devils already tried Matteau/Tedenby up with those two I could see Loktionov getting a chance for 1 or 2 games with them.
Where are they now? That's right, not in the NHL because there games don't translate very well and NHL scouts know it after seeing them vs pros.
This is about what I expected for Loktionov after he asked to be traded. At least we got back what we paid to get him.
Moller I buy that argument for, but Holloway? Not a chance. He's over in Sweden because he wouldn't get a shot with the Kings and he'll come back when they don't have his rights(if he doesn't go to the KHL)
Also, forgot about Moulson and Purcell. Damn, that's pretty impressive.
