Rick Nash because he has more skill. The Rangers need skill.

Nash easily. Both are overpaid, so that's a wash. Nash is the better player.

Nash because he doesn't look like a caveman. Oh and he's also a better player.

Not even really close, and I'm not much of a Nash fanatic.

Nash is the better player with far more skill, but id rather have Lucic. cause I think his style of game has far more impact on your team. The guy will drop the gloves for anyone, he never backs down from a fight, constantly chirps top players to get them off their game, can throw a huge hit to turn a game around, he is dirty but thats cause hes so competeitive. Hes a very overlooked vocal leader in the bruins dressing room. Not many dmen can handle him downlow, the guy is a wild boar along the boards. He punishes and wears down defensemen, gets his team a lot of PPs and is probably the strongest man on the roster.

All this and his attitude is the reason why hes a fan fav in Boston.

Nash gives you scoring and some light defensive game but thats it.

Depends, I suppose.

For the Bruins, Lucic. Without him our intimidation factor is basically nothing. Sure, we have Chara, Horton, McQuaid, Thornton, whoever, Lucic IS the Bruins. Our identity is completely different without him. If you say 6m is overpayment, he'd EASILY fetch at least 7-8 million on the open market. EASILY.

It doesn't take much to say Nash is the better player, he is, but especially on the Bruins where our whole top-6 besides Krejci and Bergeron are capable of 30 goals, and when all of our top-9 is capable of 20 goals, we don't need a big-time scorer. A big, tough physical forward who's the most intimidating player in the league, (who can still score 30 goals) is more valuable to the Bruins.

Lucic isnt overpaid nearly as much as Nash, so i guess him. It would be nice to somehow steal Nash off of the Rangers, but for my team's stake i'll grab Lucic

I really like Lucic but it's not as if he's ever been called upon to be the offensive focal point of his team.

He gets a bit of a free ride because of the depth on the Bruins.

If I'm a Bruins fan, I'm hardly complaining.

Wow, slow down. Why pay so much for Lucic when there are players out there who may not be as "intimidating" but have other upsides? Say - Hartnell, Clowe, Horton, etc.?

Looch is a very unique player, but he isn't the kind of guy who you should expect to put the team on his back. He makes the job for everyone else easier, so he needs guys who can capitalize on that.

I don't get it Lucic had more pts last year, more fights, more physical, less injury prone and playoff experience at a younger age and smaller cap hit. Why is he losing so badly?
