Cam Neely he's sure not.

Lucic's never going to be an elite finisher. That's not his game. But I'd still kill to have him- he's a game-changing power winger in the mold of Terry O'Reilly.

A version of Dustin Penner who actually hits and has a mean streak is what Lucic looks to be headed. Which I would take over the current Dustin Penner.

I actually was willing to deal Pitkanen for Lucic last summer straight up since Boston was looking for puck moving D.

WE win the game last night if Hemsky gets the puck up just a few inches.

With the amount of players in the league that keep the shots on the ice as much as they do Gump Worsely could make a return..

This I can buy. I was just challenging the notion that he's some supreme offensive player.

Nothing in his resume indicates that.

I'm kinda baffled why Hemsky didn't roof that puck. He usually does in that case. That was the game pretty much.

The Oilers could use a Lucic type of player badly actually. I think that's who the front office thought JF Jacques was going to be when we drafted him.

21.1% this season. 11.2% overall.

http://bruins.nhl.com/team/app?page=...e=page&tab=crs

Of course he's never been a ppg player.

He's only in his second season. He's 20.

A year younger than Cogliano.

Cogs: 90GP 20G 29 A 49P
Lucic: 87GP 12G 22A 34P

I think both will be very good players.

That was the game totally. Everybody in the rink knew it. Finish that gimme play and we win. There were others.

Bruins were very fortunate to walk out with the deuce.

It's easier said than done when your shooters are seldom given time to tee up the shot.

Yes, Hemsky had the best chance. He also had a split second to make the shot and Thomas still came up very large to stop it.

All I am saying is 2 SOs in a row is more than a lucky goalie and bad shooters.

Thomas is solid though .... he's probably like the Eastern Conference version of Garon ... a guy who doesn't get a lot of respect because he's never been seen as a no.1 or doesn't play a certain style. I'm surprised Fernandez has been a dud for them, he always killed us with Minny.

The Oilers should have lost the first 2 games of the season and the hockey Gods are now getting even. It all evens out.

I said career, anywhere.

I'll take Mr Buggs assessment that this is Terry O Reilly if he's lucky and nothing more.

I think his upside is quite a bit higher than Penner's. For goodness sake he came right out of junior.

Probably, but I remember reading the Boston boards before the season started and they also pegged him as a 25g/30a type of guy ... which is right around Penner's usual production.

His physical play is really on another planet though. Love his game.

I for one was amazed. The Bruins put on a clinic in their defensive zone.

Well I wouldn't get too carried away. That was a great play between Nilsson and Hemsky, but the Bruins still outshot us and I think probably outchanced the Oilers, the Oilers need to stop thinking they just have to eek out wins.

Go out there and friggin' compete for 60 minutes and earn it.

He's the Penner we would all like Penner to be. Is that fair?

Yes they did. And they actually do it without being "Minnesota boring".

He's Penner with extra testosterone injected into his balls. Yes. I think that's fair to say.

I'm not saying hes lucky. He's playing the odds that shooters are not finishing the deal and going high and he's running the table doing that.

Jari Kurri and Mike Bossy would send this guy to the AHL. Its odd how theres some really good players now but few lethal finishers.
