I agree. I like Trevor Lewis.. But with each passing game you can kind of notice he's fast, but still last. Westgarth had a good game, but in all honesty he's useless.. Can't envision Zeiler hanging around either..

Loktionov and Schenn are better options and really have looked better.

Ponikarovsky, Loktionov, Schenn >>> Zeiler, Westgarth, and Lewis.

If he can keep from getting run off the puck when he gets it, then sure. He has all the skill but not the strength or know-how to keep from finding himself in position to lose the biscuit. I think it was one bad first line of the many we have tried this year.

I'd rather have Moller up here to be on Kopitar's left hand side, Loktionov is a natural center, let him develop in Manchester

I don't think Loktionov's skill will develop much more in Manchester. He needs NHL experience.

All right, nice start guys. I will bring him up. I think that Loktionov is a good skater and he should start getting regular call ups later on this season. I think he could be ready as early as next season.

I heard he is a fan of Swiss Miss hot chocolate (true) and that he like the band MUSE (true).

Now its the next posters turn to bring him up.

Oh gosh no! Sorry, he's still not ready. I didn't see anything from him when he was here. Again no. What's next official bring up Kozun thread? Or any other not ready prospects thread. No.

Terrible idea. Him and any of the kids under 22 should be in the AHL developing.

Does that mean that 2013-2014 is the year the Kings contend for the Cup?

Maybe longer but I'm patient. I don't see the rush when your best players are under 23.

Hard cap just further proves my point about drafting well so you have a steady flow of cheap, ELC talent.

... I'd like to see Loktionov up, sure. But not on the first line.

Certainly there's no substitute for NHL experience. He didn't get much of a chance (just 7 games) to show what he could do.

Problem here is the Stoll line is set, the Kopitar line needs time to gel, and the Kings don't have the margin for error that they did before. It's just a tough situation.

They act like the Core is going to be broke up next year. When in reality thanks to Dean's cap space, we will likely have the core for another five to seven years.

Not ready yet. Your better off bringing Moller up. Lokti could very well be up mid season though.

Keep him in Manchester, he's not going to provide the spark we need playing as a winger.

As everyone said, he needs to play center and got knocked off the puck last time he played on the first line earlier in the season. I'd rather have him lighting it up in Manchester.

Moller needs to be up here. He's proven he can play at the NHL level and he's not afraid to shoot. I don't see why we can't give him a chance on the 1st line LW spot. I don't think he's ready for 1st line duties, but seriously, we tried King there. Moller did really well this past weekend. Bring him up when his confidence is high.

Most of us agree that Moller should be called up before Loktionov, I don't understand why DL & TM don't give him a shot
