Dez, just to "ruin your summah", are you convinced Looch is the power forward we all assume he is? I'm lazy at the moment to expound and I'm sure we'll all get into this later in the season, but on the surface the Bs have a lot of players they need to take care of if they want to keep the core. As sad as it is, and as much I really want to pull for Lucic, I'm feeling less and less that he's part of the core.
Core players, for me, are a small mix of must-keeps that will be with this team potentially for the rest of their career. The line can be drawn in a number of places, but I don't see the core extending beyond (in order):
5. Horton *or* Lucic - not both
7. Pick one vet - Campbell, Peverly, Kelly to anchor the 3rd line (the PJ Axelsson guy).
Some feel Krejci and Lucic should be on this list. I like the Peverly signing because, at worst, he can anchor the 3rd line. I think PC alluded to this in his announcement. As for Krejci, his value is less when you have Bergeron and Seguin in the core and not going anywhere, and guys like Peverly, Campbell and Kelly on the roster to fill in bottom 6 depth. Lucic is a tougher call, but I still need to see a more consistent effort of physical play night in and night out before considering him a Bruins for life.
