[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Lucic Will Not Be Traded Before his 35th Birthday : I love how people are jumping all over Lucic for his playoff performance this year. There are things he can do alone and there are things he needs his linemates help to accomplish. Alone, Lucic can check people. He certainly did that. I didn't see him pass up one opportunity. I can't count the amount of times I saw two strides and bang against the left wing boards after the puck had been passed. Alone, Lucic can carry the puck. There were countless times when he was bring the puck into the zone by himself. He didn't take the easy route with a quick dump. He carried it across the blue line
and often times down the wall. Alone, Lucic can play defense. He covered his spots. He back checked. Never did I replay a goal
and think, "Oh, 17 blew the coverage on that one." With teammates, he can score. He is not Kessel, Seguin, Semin, or any of the other super snipers. He needs to have the play set up and the pass, or he needs time to get to the net. Krejci was a ghost this post season. Peverley is NOT a first line player. What's he supposed to do?

Nice carry in on 2 big goals, Seidenberg and Seguin's OT goal.
You would have to replay some of defensive zone errors that the Bruins got scored against. The Caps 1st goal in game 7 kind of originates on a Lucic mis-play and turnover. In the end it was a tip and not directly from the Lucic turnover although we can still give him part of the blame.
I'm just nitpicking because i's not on that play that'll determine if Lucic is a keeper or not, so many players made, make mistakes that cause or miss goals.
Mistakes happen, even by the refs.
