Krecji is a center and they have more value/importance to teams than wingers, and Lucic is a power forward and again higher value.

Boston kept Krecji and Lucic and traded Kessel and won the Stanley Cup the very next season. Hard to criticize the GM with that much success when picking to keep only 2 of the 3.
