      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Report] Loktionov asks Kings for a trade, Bernier ok for now

Recommended Posts

I'd do Tanev for Loktionov in a heartbeat, maybe some picks to even it up. We have great defensive depth, we need depth at center desperately.

Sedin - Sedin - Kassian

Burrows - Kesler - Booth

Hansen - Loktionov - Raymond

Higgins - Lapierre - Malhotra

Amazing depth at forward and center is what Cup winners have - quality on defence is more important than depth on defence.

As others have said, why would you do that? Trade one of the D-man who has played in every game for us so far for a guy who might be 5th or 6th on our depth chart at center once everyone's healthy but wants to play NHL minutes?

We're doing fine with Schroeder and Kesler will be healthy in a few weeks, plus we have Burrows filling in and Lappy and Manny as further cover. I'd try him over Ebbett, sure, but we have plenty of forwards and my first inclination would not be to trade a D for him even if that's what the Kings want.

My quip at the end of the OP was about people probably jumping to suggest Ballard (or as Smashian nicely pointed out, Barker) for him, since we may have to move Ballard's cap hit for next year anyway. I wouldn't move one of our very affordable, young, up and coming D though, and I was only half kidding about moving Ballard as well.

Got to meet this kid when he was a rookie in windsor. He is my alltime favorite spit. As much as I would like Vancouver to make an offer he's just not a good fit . He's creative smart has extremely soft hands and superb passing abilities. On the other hand he is small slow and as soft as a bunny. I'm a small guy myself and when I shook his hand I got the sudden urge to push him over and mug him.

We don't need Loktionov, don't want to trade Tanev for him and Schroeder is doing a good enough job.

He should go to someone like the Flames: atrocious center depth and even less talent.

Kings will likely use him as trade fodder to either replace an injury, or load up with a rental for their next playoff run.

Example? Calgary is out of the playoff run, so they trade Anton Babchuk (impending UFA) to LA for Loktionov.
