Lucic is a unique player and no doubt he adds value to any team. I believe he has a shorter shelf life than a lot of more mobile skill guys in the game, and it's just a product of his style. His agent would be negotiating with this in mind, knowing Lucic will not be cashing in on his UFA years the same way some of the skill guys will be. I think it's smart by the B's because I wouldn't want to start commiting long term and paying a premium for UFA years for a guy who plays the game like Lucic does.
