Agree. If he's not shooting, he's only hitting. And really we don't need him hitting for 6M.

Maybe this is what you're trying to say, but he needs to do both, and he needs to do them effectively and productively.

If he's only doing one or the other, and neither very well, then some reevaluation of what he is bringing to the table -- as opposed to what he's taking away ($6M) -- needs to be done.

I really don't care what Lucic's hit stat is. My eyes tell me he is an ineffective power forward who is not hitting hard enough. He has a problem!
Lucic got caught covering the point against a fast player. Never going to be his forte.

Two other players were in position to stop him. Krejci flailed at him like a helpless mite for 5 minutes and permitted Grabovski to stand stationary and pick the corner b/c he wasn't strong enough, or didn't have the wherewithal to simply lift his stick. He wasn't up against Eric Lindros there.

How a/b when Lucic barrels down the wing on a dead play, picks off Franson's clearing attempt, banks it to Krejci coming over the line, takes a smoking from Franson that would have put Krejci in the hospital. So permitting Krejci to sets up a wide open Horton who....takes....theeeeee.....longeeeeest.....wind. ...up.....since 1988, and drills a slapper into Riemer's crest.

That happened twice actually. Horton got set up from behind the net by Lucic who beat 2 defenders, Reimer even went down and Horton.....couldn't....oh wait.....wait...almost.....get.....a.....shot off.

Lucic has had no shortage of help in regard to that line being completely ineffective. This is not the first time we've seen this from this line, either.

Trade Lucic? I hope they do. It will be ****ing hysterical. Especially if he ended up w/ a big dominant center, like Getzlaf, and didn't spend all his time chasing the puck. He'd probably pot 35 while we sit around and wonder why Bobby Ryan is always on the perimeter absorbing hits.

Both of these guys are really the issue with the team right now. You cant have two big top line wingers mailing it in before the puck drops each night.

Quite frankly I am only really dissapointed in Lucic. Horton is and has always been lazy as sin and only likes the physical play when he reaches a boiling point....as in revenge only and never a proactive physical game.

Its upsetting that Horton gets a free pass from Julien. He should be the 4th line RW now...nothing more. If you want to shake up the team and send a message that the effort isnt there you dont do it by benching Peverly...take real action.

In his role with the team, he has to make that hit, whether it's his forte or not. True, Krejci didn't look a whole lot better, and there were plenty of other breakdowns, but none of those happen if he makes the initial hit. No argument regarding your other points, either.

He was caught on D. I actually think the smart play was to back up, get body position, stay w/ him, and slow him down. Going for the hit at all was the mistake.

After Siedenberg, a Dman, gets torched on one play like a pylon, then gets blown up by Orr on another, both leading to goals. I'm not going to eat Lucic's lunch for getting schooled in a position he shouldn't have been in. Especially when two other players also flunked "what would Ray Bourque do 101" before the goal was scored.

Not putting the puck in the net? Not coming up w/ pucks? Forcing passes instead of taking another two strides, or shooting? Yup, fair game. But it seems to me anything and everything that can be blamed on Lucic, is. Including the play, or lack thereof, of his two linemates.

Why he didn't drop Horton down. Because he knows he'd be even more useless. Lucic can actually produce w/ those linemates.

He wasn't caught playing D. He was a forward in front of the play. He had a defenseman and a center behind him. He should have simply angled him into the boards and ended it there.

I've always thought Lucic needs to fight every so often, Always seems when he goes a while between fights his game drastically drops off. Also never been a fan of him & Horton on the same line, they're to similar, thought both need fast wingers working the other side.

Watch that goal Jamie Benn assisted on last night. When has he or nate ever crashed the net?

Looch should watch clarkson and Simmonds videos. He needs to stop being so perimeter.

For all of the **** Lucic has taken here, he's made at least one or two brilliant passes in each of the last few games that were completely shanked by Horton.

Blame Lucic all you want, it's not his fault Horton can't be bothered to put his stick on the ice every once in awhile. I'm not letting Lucic off the hook, but all of this "trade Lucic!" talk is mind boggiling.

Can we finally and seriously be honest about making a move with these 2 players?

Horton won't be here next year and a Chicago or Anaheim may wanna add a piece like him for a stretch run. So get something for him now. Trade him to Pittsburgh even, they seem to be in the market for rentals

As for Lucic, he is not and will never be the player he was 3 or 4 years ago. Time for a change for Looch and get some real scorers to play with Krejci.

I think patience is wearing thin for these 2 guys, and Chia needs to clean up his 6 million dollar mess. The tough and rough identity is long and gone, they don't scare anyone anymore especially the way these 2 guys have turned out.

Why, so Krejci can pass the puck to the opposition at the blueline some more? If that line is going to succeed it needs wingers that can do it all. Carry the puck up the ice, be responsible defensively, score, and hit everything that moves because although the center can do no wrong for some reason and is completely immune to criticism, he doesn't really contribute a whole lot to their game.

Not sure who Krejci gets lost in all this. I am a big DK fan, but he is one of those God awful lazy ass streaks he has...Easy to blame the wingers, but THEIR CENTER CREATES NOTHING right now...nothing..

Horton and Lucic both had pretty good games when they were centered by Spooner.

I'm not a huge Krejci fan, but he is playing a lot better than Lucic an Horton. I think it's difficult for him right now cause he is trying to do too much. That line is base on getting pucks in deep and working the boards, but the wingers are not winning those battles an are not getting to lose pucks he may be trying to do too much, but Lucic has lost many pucks in his own end that have ended up in the back of the net, so your argument of giveways do not help you.
