proheffanol Posted June 15, 2015 Share Posted June 15, 2015 So with all the salary cap problems Boston can potentially have this summer, with resigning Dougie Hamilton as top priority, there have been discussions around the league about Lucic probably being the guy to be traded out of Boston if they have to clear some cap space. Lucic has 1 year left on his contract with a cap hit of $6 mill and I can see Boston making the choice of rather losing Lucic and getting something in return rather than learning at this time next year they can't afford him and will just lose him for nothing. I know it sounds crazy to bring up the idea of Milan "scumbag/nutshot" Lucic in Vancouver, but based on Benning's Boston connection I can see him at least making a couple calls about the opportunity or atleast to see what Boston would want in return. Plus everyone talks about how Vancouver needs that big physical presence on offence more than anything and despite all the scumbag crap Lucic has done, any team (except Montreal) would want to make an offer to acquire him. And of course he's from Vancouver and won the memorial cup with the giants don't forget. Also, despite how a lot of fans see Lucic as around here, I bet if he became a canuck most of them will all of a sudden be all excited to see him, Canuck fans anyway (particularly the bandwagon ones) seem to be pretty quick at changing their minds from loving someone to hating them and vice versa (Luongo as a prime example), at least that's how I see it. In conclusion, would you be greatly against the idea of Benning trading for Lucic and would rather eat your own puke? Or can you see Lucic in Vancouver potentially working out and everyone moves on from what happened in the past? In terms of who Boston would want in return, I haven't really thought that much into it yet, but I would imagine at least Kassian would go the other way since Boston kept asking for him last season.
