Not at all IMO. I doubt Loktionov will see any time in our bottom 6, wich is exactly where Darche should be if he does get a contract.

I'll be honest. I haven't seen the guy play much at all. I trust your judgement. If so, let's hope he gets a shot with the big team this season at some point.

Considering any team could sign him, and if any team wanted to they already would have, he should be pretty content that he at least has a team to work out with where there is potential he'll get a deal

I like this trade, to get Loktionov for just a 5th rounder is a steal by Lou, This kid has some great potential to be a good player in this league.

I feel like Darche's immediate future is more tied in with when/if they send down Matteau. Darche would be a 12th/13th forward with Barch. Loktionov will still have to earn a promotion and probably is eyeing a scoring line role.

I dont think Loki has to earn promotion. Again, I think he is only in the AHL until they make a roster space

Correct. Unless Barch is being sent down
They won't send down Barch. He's on a one way, and I don't see them putting him in the minors to pay him $750k grand. Plus I think they feel we need an enforcer still, but Janssen being demoted was totally fine with me.

I don't dislike Barch too much, but let's be serious. Do we really NEED Barch in the lineup against teams like the Lightning, Sens, Caps, Habs, etc?

$816k cap hit.

Roughly what people suggested we'd pay Gomez.

Just sayin'.

Then he's not playing for us. He's going to be on our third line with Josefson

I can see him playing top 6. Loki is much better when he plays with skilled players. You put him in the Top 6 and move Zubie to the 3rd line

No matter how you slice it, we gave up a 5th rounder for a former 5th rounder who has since developed. It's a win no matter what happens.

Good move. No risk. Decent reward if he pans out. Not sure where he'll play exactly though.

This trade will look great when Josefsson gets injured

OK so we got Loki for the 5th, that`s like nothing. Great job Lou, now go get me Kulemin, because the Pens seem to be interested in him too...



11:30 and following.

Sorry, I had to post it again.

Welcome aboard, Loki.

I like the sound of that if he can make Zajac and Kovy better, scratch Barch for most games and go with Zubrus-Josefson-Butler and CBGB goes back to being the true 4th line.

Loktionov has played one NHL game since February 22, 2012, and still has scored a goal more recently than Scott Gomez.

I think he'll get a shot alongside Kovy and Zajac, bumping Zubrus on our 3rd.

At that price great move and adding more young forward depth with potential is always a good thing, especially with how thin we are. Curious what the plan with him going forward is.

I advocate Loki on a line with Kovalchuk.
