      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.

Kings acquire 5th round selection in 2013 NHL Draft from New Jersey for Andrei Loktionov http://ow.ly/hujg3

LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings have acquired a fifth-round selection in the 2013 NHL Draft from the New Jersey Devils in exchange for forward Andrei Loktionov, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced today.

Loktionov, 22, has played in 59 career NHL games (all with the Kings), recording 14 points (7-7=14) and four penalty minutes. The 5-10, 179-pound native of Voskresensk, Russia was drafted by the Kings in the fifth round (123rd overall) in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.

This season, Loktionov has appeared in 37 games for the Manchester Monarchs (AHL), recording 22 points (7-15=22) and six penalty minutes.

The Kings continue their road trip in Nashville tomorrow beginning at 5 p.m. (PT). The game will be broadcast on FOX Sports West – including a pre-game show -- and KTLK AM 1150.

Cue the Henrique package for Luongo in the off season, if Loktionov works with Kovalchuk. He's Russian so it'll work.

And DownUndaCanuck was willing to give Tanev for him, then all he returned was a 5th. Lol

Good move for NJD.

New Jersey gets much needed offensive boost with this trade. LA lost two good prospects in two months first Tomas Hickey now Loktionov.

I didn't see New Jersey as a team that'd go after him, wondering more about Calgary, Phoenix or Chicago (maybe even Tampa). But it makes sense for them as well, especially at the cost of only a 5th.

For those wondering why Gillis didn't do this, feel free to share where you would have put him in the lineup. Remember, the reason he requested a trade was because the Kings couldn't find icetime for him as they already have better centers and Loktionov didn't play well when they tried to switch him to wing. I look forward to your responses.

Actually, this seems like a favor Lombardi did for both Loktionov and for Uncle Lou.

I doubt the Canucks could have acquired Loktionov for anything like a fifth round pick.

I kinda doubt Gillis even knew about this.
