I heard McGuire on WFAN with the Pope and he was RAVING about Andrei Loktionov. 

 

"It's this kind of move that makes Lou Lamerillo the best GM in the game.   Loktionov isn't big, but he doesn't need to be with Clarkson, Zubrus and Carter"  Brilliant move"

To be fair, when has McGuire ever been negative about a prospect?

True.  In that same interview he said that Dougie Hamilton (who has played all of 10-11 games in the NHL) is going to be one of the best defensemen in the NHL over the next 12-15 years.  Listening to him makes you think that every prospect is going to put up Gretzky-like point toals, play defense like Chara, and be a leader like Scotty Stevens.

Does anyone here think that loktionov can do what JJ does if not better? I'm assuming not otherwise he would be on the team, but it made me think that maybe the two are interchangeable so one would go in a trade with a dman for someone. Again I want to keep JJ, I love how smart the kid is on the ice. Just thinking.

To be fair, aside from a badly undervalued Landeskog, the drop off after Larsson (or Loki if he pans out) is pretty drastic.

Yeah McGuire thought the kid could be real good and loved the move.

Andrei Loktionov

Hometown: Moscow, Russia
Currently Playing In:Pro
       
Prospect Talent Score: 7.5


Probability of Success: C

 

Talent Analysis

Loktionov is a solid two-way player who can fulfill
various roles on the team ranging from a defensive expert on
shorthanded units to a playmaker on a power-play unit.  He sees the ice
well and effectively uses his linemates, creating a number of scoring
chances.  A couple of more significant improvement areas for Loktionov
include his faceoff skills and his scoring ability.  Specifically in
regards to his scoring ability, while always a danger in the offensive
zone, Loktionov prefers to pass rather than shoot and in a shot-filled
North American style of hockey a more multi-dimensional game would make
him more dangerous and hard to contain.

What a fvcking steal this trade was.  Lombardi must of felt like he owed Lou one for everything he's done for him through the years and last year's cup.

Some players just need the right system and players around them to produce.  It wasn't happening for him but that changed when he came here.  It is good for him to have some Russians to learn from. :)

Its just about time. I'd be comfortable with extending this kid right now. He has absolutely left Josefson in the dust and become a big part of this team. And for a 5th rounder? GM-Lou-Lamoriello-proud-of-New-Jersey-De
