Oh my a 20 yr old Lucic versus a well known tough guy in Erskine and he got kncoked down sheesh yeah over hyped for sure , since then Lucic has become a damn decent scorer and won a cup and plays top line minutes and still can clock most of the leagues players in fights.

No questioning his rise as a more than decent player. But reference to "legend" is to his fistic prowess only. There is continued chatter about his Komisarek bout, but based on what I've seen, Mike is not much of a pugilist. I thought Lucic was supposedly invincible...that's the "legend", but then was pointed to his fights with Orr and Erskine...so my question is how does he fare against legitimate fighters or does he just beat up on "soft" opponents.

People like him because he's a very rare combination. Puts up points, scores goals, creates space for his teammates and scraps

He doesn't do so great against the heavyweights..I doubt he can drop Orr, Parros, Scott etc like he can drop Komisarek, Brown (if they fought).

I would say that it probably wouldn't end well for James. This isn't JVR's place. That's Orr's job.

Lucic is tough, no question. And he has fought some goons but, when he fought Orr, took a few good shots and hid behind the linesmen, I lost some respect for him. If you drop the mits, you fight. You don't take a good shot and hide.

Huh? Lucic "answered the bell". He hid because he was getting beat up. Definitely got involved in the fight though.

Orr just beat the crap out of him so Lucic thought better of wasting his time with Orr, but that was only AFTER he already...wasted...his time...with Orr...

Good thing he didn't. It wouldn't end very well for him.

Thought about and then remembered he has glass bones.

That was pretty damn close to interference though -- Kessel didn't even touch the puck.
