Because most people realize that if Rick Nash was playing for the Bruins, the points would favor him. Dont get me wrong, Lucic is a gem of a hockey player, one of a kind really, but he doesnt have that kind of value yet despite everything he brings to the table. Nash can score 40-50 goals in the right situation, something I dont think Lucic will ever be capable of.

Ask this question in two years, and if Nash is still playing uninspired hockey, then Lucic would have a much better chance if he stays at this level.
