There is a post somewhere on the Eriksson thread quoting Dan Murphy that he vetoed a trade around the trade deadline to Edmonton. I'm glad we didn't get Lucic though and am very happy with JT Miller and Micheal Ferland instead. Lucic is a tough customer though and not to be taken lightly, he may even turn it around in Calgary.

Oh this was at the trade deadline supposedly, but nothing recent right?

 

And yes I didn't want Lucic, but hey I would of taken a shot with Neal tbh.

Obviously this is great for Edmonton.  We had posters thinking Lucic + Poolparty for LE was reasonable.

 

Lucic basically straight up for Neal is much better for them.

Not that I'm aware of but the Canucks let this information leak out, maybe even to put more pressure on him to waive his NTC

The real deal playing with McJesus and you get rid of Lucic's contract? Total win for the Oilers, and because they still suck, a win for the rest of the division.

Kassian, Nurse, Khaira, Brodziak can all take on Ferland. Ferland isn't a Lucic/Reaves/Chara. He is tough and won't back down but he's still a middleweight in terms of tough guys.

He fought 6 times last year and went 6-0.

Lucic is (very slowly) making his way back to his own zone (Vancouver)

I can just see Lucic being frustrated as all hell when Ferland destroys Gaudreau and then just skates by Lucic as he treads ice.

Neal had back to back SCF runs before last season. That's very hard on body. He's definetly going to bounce back.

 

RNH gets a wingman who can score. I expect 20 plus goals for Neal next season. 

 

Plus Lucic contract is buyout proof like LEs.

 

Neal has straight salary owed. No signing bonuses for remainder of contract. Much more buy out friendly contract. 

 

Oilers win by a wide margin for next season. 

 

 Lucic will be tradable again after paying next season's $3mill bonus. His money owed will go down drastically and cap hit remain high. Cap floor team will take him.

Any word on what’s the conditional pick? I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s a 2020 1st or 2nd.

If it’s a 1st it’s could be a top 10 or a 2nd could  be a top 40. 

Plus Oiler eat some of the Contract. So am not sure if Coilers won this trade. 

 

I’m glad Canucks didn’t get Lucic because that’s another yr of having a horrible player and Contract. Unless Canucks got Oiler 2020 1st round pick.

I'm shocked Neal agreed to go to an AHL team.

well that is what he gets for having a poor agent

everyone scoffs at the nmc

but without one a player can so easily be sent down north to the coilers

I'm hoping we can get a heavyweight for a 4th line enforcer role, to draw into games when we need him. I'm glad we're tougher overall as a team, but I'd feel better if we had someone to take on guys like  Lucic and Reaves.

I checked the schedule.  The Flames meet the Canucks for just their second game, so I doubt there will be any fighting then.  The next time they meet is Dec 29th, so Lucic will still be stuffed with turkey dinner; no fighting there. 

 

By the time they meet again, Lucic will have already filled his 2 fights per season quota.:towel:
