While he did have some bad games, he had some pretty good ones also.

I'm with you. Posters posting crap like Lucic has no heart etc. Makes me feel a lot better. But bad for Lucic though

In theory it can....at least partially.

Top build on what Jdawg said:

"Less air= tire easily

Tire easily= can't move/skate as fast"

Less air can also contribute to bad decision making. No doubt about it.

if I want to blame somebody, I'll blame Claude for not recognizing it and removing Looch from the ice, (which I was indeed calling for....often).

see there always a reason for something like a player not playing what were used to them playing. This year Lucic and the year before REX with the Kidney stones. People need to take this all into account.

air to the lungs or no air to the lungs, all I know is my blood pressure went sky high as he missed a gaping empty net in the closing stages of game 2 TB.

No doubt.

He was God-awful for the majority of the playoffs. It was very very tough to watch.

If I'm not mistaken the player gets final say. The team might strongly urge, but in the end it's up to the player ... after all, it is his body.

Definitely explains things.

Hockey is probably one of the most aerobic sports and being unable to breath efficiently would certain affect production. That combined with the toe probably kept him from performing at his best.

It sometimes amazes me what professional athletes-especially hockey players will play through. Most of these injuries would have non players laid up for weeks.

Yeah, of course he was having trouble during the playoffs. If you can't get oxygen to your blood, you can't function nearly as well.

I still have trouble believing any Bruins fan would question Lucic's effort.
As usual they talk first... then they think... then they eat crow or feel sorry...then its rinse repeat all over again.

what have we learn...

I won't defend his mistakes but I sure would love to see the heroes on here who would soldier on in the NHL playoffs as he did. He gave what he could, go ahead and comment on his results, I'm going go out on a limb and suggest many here have called in "sick" for less.

I think this guy is too fragile to play for the Bruins. He is injured every playoff.
He should go back to play for Vancouver.

Lots of hockey players have strange noses from playing. I noticed during the playoffs that Neely had his straightened out from his playing days. Chara's leans to the left, he'll probably get it fixed when his career is done too.

Tizz a tough sport we love fellas.

These reports must be wrong. Everyone know that only Vancouver had injured players from all of the Bruins cheap shots! That explains how those AHL rejects from Boston were able to steamroll them in the Cup finals!
