Luc, Armstrong, and Parros were an effective unit before injuries hit. If Luc's linemates can create space for him and get him the puck at the right time, he'll score. Which is exactly why Army and Parros were such a good match for him.

As far as Luc being too slow, well... If Luc's the first guy in the zone with the puck, you're in trouble. His bread and butter has always been getting open for a shot or banging in rebounds, not so much scoring off the rush.

His lack of speed on the backcheck is definitely a liability this year. Can't argue that. That's the thing with Luc. You just have to hope his scoring offsets his defensive shortcomings, and I'd say that when he's been paired with Armstrong and Parros, that's been the case.

IMO, He can still be useful if you put him in the right situation on the ice. Maybe pair him up with Army and Brown? I missed most of the last two games, so I'm not sure if that's been done yet.
