Little dude's playing in a role that he couldn't play in while he was here.

Good for him. Maybe Kovalchuk and Henrique will have sushi with him.
As Montreal has shown in the recent past, getting into the playoffs with talented little center-men isn't really a problem.
It's having them be effective at that point that is.
Personally, no matter how well Lokti does, I will never "regret giving up on him" like I sometimes do Purcell or Moulson. But for all of the butt-hurtedness around here about those two (and sometimes Boyle too, lolz)... exactly what have the Islanders and Lightning accomplished?
I remember Dean saying something about it being easier to flourish on bad teams...
