That could be more dangerous, Savard might bite you. Or do you fight dirty as well?


Count me as someone who has come to hate Lucic's mug though. He always has that bloody smirk on his face. It was okay when he wasn't scoring and hitting, but now it's a little bit harder to be impartial with him.

We're supposed to hate him, he's a tough guy whose always in the face of our players and he's not afraid to be pretty visible out there. That's why other teams hate Komi. He hits them then yaps about how he's going to do it again, switch sweaters, we hate diferent guys.

Boston had a guy named Bob Sweeney, [no not Don], his face was in a perma smirk, God I hated that guy. MY eye would twitch whenevr I'd see him. Smolinski was like that when he came up with Boston, always had that grin, used to bug me.

I like the kid, would welcome him on this team any day. He is the player this team has been missing for years.

So he will score 16 goals in one day? Sweet. The majority of B's fans know he is not gonna be Neely. He is likely a future captain and great leader. He actually has decent hands and good offensive instincts and decent straight-line speed, hopefully all the off-season work-outs in the future will allow him to improve his acceleration and agility. I see him as a future Scott Mellanby, I'd say his absolute ceiling (not likely) is Rick Tocchet (if everything breaks right...the kid has an outstanding work ethic and is only 19).

It depends if the NHL ever adopts nose limitations. That's one huge beak. If they limit goalie eqmt., strick curves, why subject the fans to that giant conical structure ?

I can see that...Bob Sweeney was a little wormy. Kind of like Ribiero for B's fans...glad we don't have to see him 8 times a year, he made me want to smash things....he had the same kind of facial expressions that made you pray someone would destroy him.

No he won't. We have no one that can handle Lucic. And I'm with others in saying he is exactly the type of player the Habs need.

Yeah, you got me there, not sure how it is relevant. Nick was an average, over-paid defensemen who took terrible penalties and routinely provided opposition power-plays at the worst times and had a bad attitude. Not sure he is missed by many.

Just saying that a lot of the eloquence thrown towards Lucie are pretty much the same words that were thrown towards Boynton.

Future captain blah blah blah...

Boynton went downhill fast didn't he ? He seemed to be coming in to his own as a solid 3-4 guy and just stopped getting better. He's waiver mat'l now,imo.

Lucic scored one gimme goal thanks to Streit's decision to leave him alone in front of the net. Given that much time in the slot, most players with any ability should be able to finish the play. Athough I'll give him credit, it was a nice shot. Let's not forget he flubbed two great chances where he was alone in the slot (not getting a shot on either chance).

Lucic's a good energy player, no doubt. But he lacks finish. Sure, he might improve in finishing chances, but he'll never pot 40 or 50 goals. The most he's scored at any decent level of hockey is 30 goals in junior. The constant comparisons to Cam Neely are ridiculous. That is why most of us consider him overrated. Enjoy him for what he is: a good third liner who will chip in with a goal every 4 or 5 games.

It's tthe same with Lats. He's going to be a good player and there will always be things he can do, but the hockey world got put off with all the talk generated on his behalf, thru no fault of his own. Lucic can be a 50-60 point guy, wouldn't you think ? He isn't pretty [in any respect] but his instincts are good, and when you combine it with the physical aspect, he's a nice piece to any puzzle, or at least he would be if not for the color sweater he wears.

This is a good post. That's a much better comparison actually. I can see that. I've honestly read/heard the Neely comparison so many times I think it's driving me nuts.

He did, curious case because he was taking so many bad penalties here and was apparently bad in the dressing room; however it seemed to stem from the fact that he hated losing...he seemed to be trying to play overly physical. There seems to be a growing # of d-men (like Boynton) who are perceived at being good in all three zones, able to contribute a little offensively, play well in their own end, play physical...but in the end the simple decision making or bad turnovers really exposes them. Brad Stuart and the Toronto Maple Leafs defensive corps come to mind. It seems it is easier to mix & match strengths of d-men then to find those guys who can contribute in all areas...maybe because they end up getting overpaid. You guys definitely have a nice mix of versatile d-men, but in general they seem to be hard to come by.

Once again mcphee has said everything that I think, but am not eloquent enough to express in my own posts. I believe that Lucic will probably score around 25 goals in his prime years, while at the same time providing toughness and leadership. I don't think he's a bad player, I just can't see him becoming a superstar in the league.

Yeah, but the problem is that they seem to be on the same side for the same type, except for Hammer and Breezer...

Komi and O'Byrne are big, checking, defensive Dmen and are both right-handed, Markov and Streit are both small, talented, poking, offensice Dmen and are both left handed... a mix of the sides would be good for a change.

You mention his issues in the room, I always thought McLaren would've become more than he did, but I heard similar stories.

A lot of that was pre-lockout where our ownership was very cheap and there was quite a bit of turnover. I think there was a bad culture/vibe sorrounding the team. People saw a revolving door of players, people leaving for greener pastures. I know McLaren supposedly felt like he needed a fresh start...although I think I remember some bad arbitration resolutions that probably p*ssed him off. I know the SJ board is calling for McLaren to be benched in favor of Erhoff. I always upset when mcLaren left, Boynton...not so much.
