Milan Lucic: Puts the Big and Bad in the Boston Bruins

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/nhl--mi...212507396.html

Good article. It sheds some extra light on Lucic's out of shape moments after the lockout was over. What I find interesting is that he's actually smaller than his listed weight, although most players tend to pack on weight as the season goes on ( Chara goes up from 255 to 270 towards the end of the season ).

Quote:
Boston’s bellwether is Milan Lucic. The power forward is the personification of the big, bad Bruins. When he is skating with a snarl, driving to the net and dropping the gloves, he sets the tone for the team. Nathan Horton, his buddy and linemate, calls him “Ultimate” because he can do everything – skate, score, hit, pass, fight.

But when he doesn’t do those things, that can set the tone, too. And when he showed up to training camp out of shape, it raised questions. How would Looch look? How about Horton coming back after missing almost a full calendar year? How about the team coming off a first-round playoff loss and a four-month lockout layoff?

I was thinking a week ago that the reason Lucic is playing so well, is simple. His buddy Horton is back!! These guys are good friends I'm telling you. I don't want to be the one that runs into Horton lol Lucic is going to pound you out!!

I have the Philadelphia game circled on the calendar.

Thanks for the link and read. This article just adds to the hope that I have that this team can easily reach the top of the mountain again and hoist that CUP!! Lets do it!!!!!

“There’s a lot of luck involved,” Chiarelli said.

But luck has been on their side so far. Starting with Ultimate (Lucic), they have a shot at the ultimate again.

Nice article Lucic personafies this team. Hard honest work will get you to the top. Chara the same. Two players that started at the bottom and made it all the way to the stanley cup. Not to mention Bergeron, Thomas(rip), Krejci, Kelly, Peverley etc. Love my Bruins

The Bruins are lucky enough to have two (Marchand).

Very true.

It's a lot easier to score goals when you're having fun. Lucic-Horton has been a well known Bromance since 2010.
