He's a top 10 middleweight fighter sure... probably top 3 fairly easily. But he can't fight heavyweights.
Funny how one of the best posts in the thread is a thread praising him eh? I believe what I see and that is a slow player with limited skill thriving off of the team/line/PP time he receives.. similar to Neal scoring 40 because he plays with Malkin.
I like Pat Kane, He is a skilled player and a fun player to watch. But if pat kane does not score in a game , chances are he has no contribution to the game simply because he is not there to play defense, be physical or fight. He is there to be a playmaker. Playmakers are rare these days and are highly regarded.
Lucic, can bring all those elements to a game plus intimidate the opposition. Lucic forechecking you is on the mind of many defenseman playing the puck. I cant think of too many forwards that can do that in this league. And btw lucic scored 5 less points than kane last year so really think long and hard about the value of this unique player.
