It's not a knock on Krejci to say that Malkin has a higher ceiling for scoring. It's again, just a fact. What kills me about this place most of the time is that when you objectively (read as not ballwashing a Bruins player) say something, people act like you kicked their dog and called their baby ugly.
But you didn't say Lucic has never scored 40. You're saying other NHL teams have "elite" players and the Bruins don't, and if the Bruins lose a forward they're screwed. Scoring isn't the end-all of a hockey player (I'd take Lucic over a lot of those "elite" scorers; perhaps you wouldn't), and injuries can hurt any team.
Sure Crosby and Malkin are great players. But last I checked, the Penguins were 4-3 and lost to the Islanders and Maple Leafs by a combined score of 9-3.
And last I checked, I didn't have my head in the sand.
