Here's the thing...Lucic doesn't have to get a lot better to be better than Ott. He is 6 years younger and was four points off Ott's career high that he set this year. I think he's there already. Now the question is how much better than Ott he is going to become, and that remains to be seen.
Lucic played primarily with the assist machine Savard and Kessel. Also played with Krejci and Ryder. Lucic overall played with more skill than Ott did yet Ott had more points in 8 less games.
