Uh... what??? Are you talking about the $4 mil contract he's on right now, or the $6 mil contract he signed for the next 3 years? If it's $4 mil... no way is Lucic's contract an example of that. He's been good for $4 mil. Aren't you one of the guys who wants to resign Clowe for similar $$?? Lucic is arguably worth more than Clowe. He has had an off season this season -- and one that hasn't even been all that bad. He has been solid for them in the playoffs so far as well...

And if you're talking the $6 mil contract, I don't think I would really classify that as a bridge contract that has "come back to bite" the Bruins. Personally, I think $6 mil for Lucic is a bit much (though not totally unreasonable), but we'll see what he does. He hasn't even played any seasons on that contract yet.
