He's the closest comparable I can find when trying to understand when Bruins fans rip Subban. He's annoying, you'd rather play with him than against him (though I'd puke for days if Lucic was a Hab). Thornton and Campbell are embarassing. They are Julien stooges and both would have trouble cracking any other good team's lineup, especially Thornton. That guy is a ****ing moron, he's a waste of time to even think about.
I think skill is unrelated to why people hate Lucic, that was my point with Thornton.
Lucic could be a 4th liner people would still hate him as much. The guy is a dirty player. I mean, you saw what he did to Miller right, who does that seriously..??..
That's why people hate Lucic, he's dirty, big, strong and tough to beat. Him being a top 6 changes nothing, at least not to me.

The hate towards Bruins have towards Subban is because he was a pest. He was in your face, and talked a lot of crap. At the same time, he dishes out some solid body checks. So, because of that, he's a target. But the problem with PK being a target is that he's extremely tough to hit.
Apparently he embellishes too...

Anyways, all this to say, I don't think skill has anything to do with why Lucic is hated.
