What would the Red Wings trade for Andrei Loktionov? He's listed as 5'10'', 180 lbs centre, 15 games with Manchester in the AHL, has 15 points in 15 games. Touted as a top 6 centre, which, IMO, the Red Wings are missing in the system. Sure, there's Nyquist, who CAN play centre, Jarnkrok, who is penciled in as the next top-line centre, Sheahan who is more of a 3rd line centre and after that, there's a big drop-off.
Maybe I'm over-analyzing it, but something around Pulkinnen could be good, right?
