And since you can have only 3 20 year olds fighters usually have at max a 2 year CHL career.

This is still hockey and there are unwritten rules about stuff you do and don't just like Thornton doesn't go after Crosby. A 19 year old WHL tough guy doesn't go after Reinhardt or Lazar.
Lucic had 21 fights as a 17 year old. Many against guys that were 2 years older than him.

Lucic was not a special player.
