Not in terms of scoring, but just what he brings to the game because there aren't any others like him.

Last Lucic type guys to play in the NHL were Neely and Lindros in the 90s.

Obviously everyone here looks at the term of generational talent in terms of the Crosby's and Lemeuixs, but I think what he was trying to point out is that Lucic, or a player like Lucic hasn't exactly been a commodity that is widely available.
Straight from HF's own rankings:

10. Generational Talent - a player for the ages, one who can do things with a puck that no other player would even contemplate doing. Very, very few players will be deserving of this rating, probably one per decade.

Defense: Bobby Orr
Forward: Wayne Gretzky
Goaltender: Patrick Roy
