I don't think he's that special. He's a big, tough second-line quality scorer with a good shot and no puck skills beyond that. If anything he's a liability against the Habs because our defense can outskate and outthink him, and he loses his cool far too easily. There's other Bruins I both hate and fear more.

I'd take a possession driver like Pacioretty over Lucic, though admittedly it's something I'd have to think about.
I'd take Patches over him any day of the week. Lucic is a one dimensional player. I said this a few years ago, the way he plays he won't last long in the NHL. And it's happening much shorter than I expected. Take out the goonism and there isn't much there in respect to skill.
