Lucic needs to do what he did in the 3rd more often than not. This season, aside from a competent first 3 weeks or so, he's been largely lethargic and emotionless.

And while his hits number may be high, let's remember that hits is a deeply flawed stat, and that even if he's hitting he's not hitting with authority. They've been far more of the "finishing my check" variety instead of "violently separating the player from the puck" variety.

In short, he shouldn't be fawned over for doing what he's paid to do. The effort he gave in the 3rd should be his default setting.
I agree with all this...but if he didn't turn it on, we get shutout IMO. Nobody else was stepping up to wake this team from it's coma.
