It's better to have a Milan Lucic making 6 million dollars on your team, than to have no Milan Lucic at all.

Glad he is back to the Bruins, wished it was 5.5... but not going to get bent out of shape over 500,00 for one of the best and most unique power forwards in the league... longer term would have been nice too.

Well I guessed 6 mill per year but said 4 years. Guess I'm only half psychic.

1m more than Gionta for similar offensive output and 10x the physical output.

Signed years later too, so adjusting to contract overinflation, its probably equal.

As a UFA to get a player you didn't have before sure.

As an RFA that you're retaining? Looks a lot less good.

Agreed. Jacobs/Chia must be hoping for something in the CBA. Had a full year to negotiate. An injury or poor offensive season could lower his value and save a lot of cap. Could look pretty bad next year.

I don't think we should compare Lucic to an overpaid and completely different type of player like Gionta.

The deal is just 3 years anyway, either you pay more $ or give term.

Plenty of people complained/laughed at the Bruins when they signed him for $4 million, and he was well worth that. I'm not worried about this deal at all. The guy is still improving so I'm psyched he will remain in Boston.

6 mill is easily an overpayment. I like the signing cause there's less cap space for the bruins by overpaying

The Wings could use a Lucic dearly, but there's no way I'd pay 6 mil for him. He just isn't that kind of player.

Lucic is one of the meanest and hardest to play against in the league. One of the remaining true power forwards in the game.
My issue with it is I think he's more power than forward. He definitely brings unique and hard to find qualities to your lineup, but he's not a guy who's going to flip the switch and win the game for you by himself.

I don't think he's going to take the next step to 70-80 points, but IMO that's where he needs to go in order to make this contract the right value.

And at 18 millions for 3 years (seriously...), I wouldn't take him, especially considering we just locked Maxpac for 6 years(!) at a 4,5M cap hit...

In my opinion, a player of his type should be paid 5M tops a year, and on a longer term than that as well...

Milan Lucic is making 6M a year. Sidney Crosby is making 8,7M. I mean...
It's not all about "talent". As a fan of the Habs you should know this.

Why does he need to be a 70/80 point player?

If he continues doing what he is doing then he is worth it.

BTW only 20 fwds scored 70 or more points last season.

So the owners give out this kinda $$$ to Lucic, and then cry poor in the negotiations...

Overpayment imo. But Luc will give you 20 goals, and a mean presence that no one in the league will provide...

An overpayment for sure, not horrible, just not that great of deal. Definitely better than losing him for sure. Bruins fans should still be happy to have him signed.

Gionta's contract is pretty bad as well, don't fool yourself.

Having him, Gomez, and signing Cammalleri to the same salary I am not sure why Habs fans are keep laughing about this.

Get the worst contract in the league off your books and finish out of the conference basement. At that point, you may laugh at another teams contracts.
touchy much?

6m for lucic is in no way an overpayment. 30 goalscorer, 60 point wingers could get 6m on open market easily. Add to the fact that he brings one of the most raw physical and indimidating factors in a top 6 forward you can find in the NHL. Hes worth every penny.

He's a top 10 middleweight fighter sure... probably top 3 fairly easily. But he can't fight heavyweights.


Funny how one of the best posts in the thread is a thread praising him eh? I believe what I see and that is a slow player with limited skill thriving off of the team/line/PP time he receives.. similar to Neal scoring 40 because he plays with Malkin.
I must be misreading this, but just to clarify are you saying lucic is a middleweight? In what world is lucic a middleweight, hopefully I am misreading this.

I dont think lucic is the best fighter in the nhl, but i would say he is hovering around top 5-7, and that includes heavies....

bahahahaha, that is an overpayment. Not just with Lucic, but that sets the precident for the rest of the Bruins; who are right at the current cap ceiling by the way.

What do you now pay your best forward, Bergeron, when his contract is up? If your Bergeron, and you see what Seguin and Lucic makes, you're probably going to expect around $7M per I would think. Boston won't be able to afford to keep everyone imo.

Put Savard on LTIR & there's another 4+ Million in Cap Space.

Thomas only has 1 year left on his contract, that's another 5 Million in Cap Space.

Bergeron is under contract for 2 more seasons.

It shouldn't be an issue.
