Seriously though, if we didn't get the 2nd or Fox and Kravtsov was staying in the motherland for another year, i would hump that deal into submission

If Lucic had two years left, like the rest of our bad contracts, I’d do it instantly. But he’s got 4 at least isn’t it?

Yeah, it's insane.

The buyout is worse.

Exactly, its why I don't think they have to add. It is that bad. Probably the worst in the league

Damn, oofah

If there is a move out there like that where someone has two years left then go for it, but 3 or more is a no go for me. Anything in the next two years with money is pretty much not a big deal, so long as you keep enough available for Panarin

Obviously no EK in that scenario, which is fine

I think EK would be awesome the first 2-3 years of the contract and then completely fall off the last 3-4. Its the only reason I wouldn't do it. I think you are 2 years too late on EK.

You may be right though. He might be great for his whole contract. We can only guess, and my opinion is its too risky. Maybe management will see your side and go full out for him if they dont get Panarin.

They gotta do something tho. It’s been really bad this year. There is an officials story about something after every game.

I keep thinking to myself they’ll be a lockout and a buy out thing again, but that’s not a good enough reason to sign him

I’m always under the impression it only looks this bad because we have 4693 different angles in HD of bad calls. I’ve always complained about the refs.

I’m not saying it’s not bad, I’m just saying it’s always been this bad. Remember how bad the officiating was when just a skate in the crease negated the goal? Or they had to literally say distinct kicking motion because they were just disallowing anything that even came close to your skate? Yeah, I do.

Besides, those same missed trips teams playing us have gotten away with, were missed trips in the 90s too.

Lucic has a NMC that kicks in in 2021 too.

Possibly WORST contract in NHL.

I agree with 2s1p on this one. I think every single play has so many angles, and its all replayed its really not any worse than it used to be, its just caught and magnified. I also think its the league when they tell the refs, make sure you call anything close to the hands to the detriment of real penalties. I mean there are poopty refs, but I really don't think its any worse than before.

Lucic + 8, EDM retains 2 million, 20 + Georgie

Ultimately I wouldn't do it, but I think the value is actually close enough to strongly consider.
If Zegras or Caufield were available at #8, it would really be a tough decision!
