    Lucic isn’t cutting it on Draisaitl’s wing. We have Puljujarvi/Rieder on the right but no one else on the left. The issue is that we can’t trade for a winger without dumping Lucic’s contract. If we add significantly to him what kind of wingers could we get? Maybe:

    Lucic, Yamamoto, 2019 protected 1st for Krieder?

    Lucic, 2019 protected 1st for Nyquist?

    Canadiens have lot of wingers and cap space, and a need for another 1st round pick.

    If Paul did not just re-sign in Montréal, Lucic + 1st + 2nd for him would have made sense.

    The Great, Milan Lucic!
    [​IMG]

    5 years left on his term @ 6M.

    Full NMC for the next 3 seasons that turns into a modified NTC the final 2.

    I don't think Lucic waives his NMC to go to the rebuilding Rangers or Wings. But if he did, that 1st better be unprotected.

    Seems like a deep draft to be giving up and 1st in and I would hate to give up Yamamoto . I like to move on from Lucic but would rather do

    Lucic + 2nd 2019 + 2020 1st unprotected + Jones

    That's ugly.


    I am sure you would like to, but I don't see it happening.

    So, who would Oilers fans prefer to have now, Taylor Hall, or Milan Lucic? Remember when Jordan Eberle was the old whipping boy? Seems like he might be more welcome now than Lucic.

    Yeah right... :popcorn:

    Larsson is not even a Top 4 D. He is barely a #6 at that.

    Hall is a Superstar and one of the very best in the NHL! The guy is Elite!

    Oilers got robbed at gun point on that trade! It is the worst trade in the NHL in the modern Cap era. Just hilarious.

    must just be looking at the stats line and PTS column.
    Larsson is a legit top 4 Dman if not a #2. lol @#6.

    It's an impressive feat to see that Larsson and Lucic combined for half the amount of points that Taylor Hall produced this past season.

    #2? Sorry, NO way man. Not even close.

    That trade was rancid. Just disgusting. Everyone knows how bad that is.

    yup because Dmen are all about points.

    Lucic sucks , we all know that. There is no point bringing in Hall into this convo.

    Considering how much Hall's name was brought up when Lucic was signed, it's only fair, especially when you guys thought Lucic and Larsson were an upgrade over Taylor Hall. Quite the upgrade that turned out to be.

    Stopped reading after the bold because it's clear you have no idea what you're talking about.

    Why do people start these threads? They're inevitably going to turn into an absolute gongshow as soon as one or two posters decide to chime in with trolling comments and stir up **** for the mods to cleanup.

    Milan Lucic doesn't have any trade value with his contract. The Oilers don't have to organizational depth today to really commit to trading for a 'top six' LW, so why would they commit assets to trading one away?

    Just play Lucic deeper in the lineup if he continues to struggle next to Draisaitl once the season starts. He scored 34 points last year and finished the year decently skating next to Ryan Strome. Once the PP starts clicking again, that's probably a good baseline as to what the Oilers should expect from him at minimum this season. It's not preferable at his cost, but oh well. Teams sometimes have to deal with bad value.

    More likely than not, lucic with an nice asset attached will get a cap dump that's not quite as big as lucic's deal.

    Why do you have almost 10000 posts in a hockey forum when you clearly know nothing of the NHL?
