I bet Ken Holland would want him, He's the best in giving out bad contracts.
Seabrook makes more and is signed longer, You forgot this.
Lucic for Ladd
I know someone that knows his wife, and it’s not true about the heat lucic is taking. If she wants out of Edmonton it’s because she doesn’t like the city. She very much loves her hometown (Vancouver) so friedman saying he doesn’t want to play in Canada well not sure about that.
And people say Lucic has the worst contract in the NHL....
That's too bad. I think our winters can be a bit rough for people who aren't used to them but the spring, summer and fall seasons here are excellent. A few posters on here have it in their heads that Edmonton is a bad city to live in. I strongly disagree. The summers here are great and the river valley is stunning in the fall.
I bet Friedman is guessing here. Lucic would probably play in Vancouver and Montreal. That's my bet.
Ladd is certainly flying under the radar for horrible contracts. He is a 5.5 million 3rd/4th liner who has some decent advanced stats but isn't scoring the way most thought he would. Rumors of him not exactly being a team player either.
I'm kind of intrigued because nyr lacks toughness and could perhaps use this as an opportunity to move up in the draft. Does the following work?
28th, Spooner, Gilmour, 6th
Lucic (2.5M retained), 10th, Gryba, 3rd
EDM increases team speed, particularly on the back end (Gilmour won AHL fastest skater) and gets someone who can slip into a top 6 role in Spooner who has skill. Gryba is a dump.
Rangers get to move up and grab another good prospect, can stuff Gryba in the minors. Lucic at 3.5 can be tolerated in a 3rd line role, that's what they go for these days anyways. Thoughts?
You are not getting both the 10th and retention for Spooner and picks.
Lucic at 3.5 would have decent value.
Why you have to be mad? He's a good guy. He may be tired to live here because here is November months is a minus 32. Could you imagine? It's a 8 months in a year snow. Here's like a north pole.
I’d like to see a package that includes the #10 + Lucic to the Rangers for one of our lower 1sts +.
Uh, in what part of my post did I come off as mad? Also, I don't have to imagine, I live here. Hence the post.
If you think Edmonton is cold try living in Yellowknife for a year.
AVS can take all salary and give Wilson a 50% retains . (Good for the cap floor)
And after 16th+ Kerfoot or Kamenev for Skinner our second line will be better
well , thats the idea ; bad contract for a bad contract - at least Ladd could be open to the idea of being based in canada / happy as an oiler .
lucic has a nmc though so isles would have to protect him in a SEA expansion draft wheras Ladds nmc is over soon
Missed the joke?
Yikes... not happening
Chiarelli probably wants players. He wanted prospects at the trade deadline rather than picks, and I'm sure he wants to fill the hole with another player.
Given the Carolina chatter by Dreger, maybe something around Lucic and Pulujarvi for Faulk and Rask is coming - although I'm sure neither fanbase would be overly thrilled with that right now.
We got some players.
This is exactly why he might want out.
That caught my eye today, but when I actually listened to the clip, Dreger wasn't sharing a rumor or even speculating; he was just tossing out an idea. It was the equivalent of an HF trade proposal thread.

I wonder if there's a basis for Ladd + 11 or 12 for Lucic + 10, with a little retention one way or another.
Hell no to Ladd lol. He's older and has been declining for years
It'll be hilarious if Lucic actually returns something valuable and the Oilers don't take any bad contract back
NOW you want to cry wolf!?
You chased the $$$ and that's cool, but don't be a man baby about it.
Suck it up, buttercup.
It would also be hilarious if pigs could fly.
Replies like this will make the Lucic trade more satisfying
