Boy is the rest of the league going to be surprised if Andrei Loktionov does what I think he can do. Unfortunately his profile and abilities are the kind that teams throw away until he ends up on the equivalent of the Islanders and then does really well, so here's hoping New Jersey isn't that stupid.
How good we talkin? To bring this in to the thread: Do you see him as a fit with Jagr? IMO an Elias-Loki-Jagr line would seem to work with loki providing the speed/youth those vets would need and Elias being one of the best defensive forward I've ever seen.
I don't see a problem with Jagr on our "1st line", because we won't really have a 1st line that logs 20+ minutes a night.
