On a serious note
I do notice that a lot of emphasis is placed on Lucic being the one that gives the Bruins this attitude of rough and ready style of play.
Chara was the addition that lead the charge of "Big Bad Bruins" back in 06/07 before Lucic even played a game for the team.
When Lucic was ready for a full season, the team also brought in Shawn Thornton, lost Primeau, Chara was cemented as the piece to build around, etc
The mentality started before even drafting Lucic. Yes, he gets credit for being a part of their style but not for being the integral piece of creating the Big Bad Bruins of this decade

All in all, I'd take Lucic at the current contract as well for Montral
