To LA: Malkin
To Pitt: Lokionov, Williams, Mitchell, Bernier
I'd be happy with a pick for him. 2nd if we can. 3rd if not.
Hope his request goes through. Loktionov deserves to play at the NHL level by now. Wish him all the best.

I can't say I blame him. The guy plays 39 regular season and two playoff games and still doesn't get his name on the Cup (while a guy like Westgarth does), but he also has it exposed on national TV that he doesn't get invited with Richards and Doughty when they go out for sushi.
To the Islanders for whatever picks greater than the 5th round you can get for him.
at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.
