How need to retool Flames roster affects Seattle expansion draft situation Milan Lucic has officially done his part to help with the team’s off-season maneuvering. The veteran Flames winger has waived the no-movement clause in his contract for the Seattle Kraken expansion draft this summer. “As much as I want to stay in Calgary I didn’t want to handcuff Tree (GM Brad Treliving) in the expansion draft so I agreed that I would waive it for the expansion draft if he didn’t want to protect me,” Lucic told Sportsnet.ca. “I really enjoy it here in Calgary and I’d love nothing more than to spend the rest of my career here.” ... Lucic confirmed that when Treliving was in the midst of orchestrating the trade that brought Lucic to Calgary for James Neal in July 2019, he gave a verbal agreement to waive his NMC. At that time, Lucic wanted a change of scenery and was more than willing to waive expansion draft protection to make it happen. Lucic has 20 points in 50 games this season and has two years remaining on his deal, which sees the Flames pay him $5.25 million per season and the Oilers, $750k.
