If the Oilers can find a taker for Lucic, then Vancouver should be able to find someone to take Erikson...

When Ek heard Lucic to the island, he didn't realize it was Robidas island

Re: Greg Johnson;

To be fair, I haven't seen that on any of the legit sites either...

RIP and sympathies to his family.

Lucic can still play, he's just not worth $6mil/yr

Lucic's bonus is payable on the 17th. Not the 1st.

Buffalo Thanks you...

in fairness Nylander does have all the tools to be a goal scorer, just don't think he has it upstairs...

Nylander was finally traded for a defenseman...

If clicks are what he's after, I think EK missed a golden headline opportunity here...

I wouldn't mind seeing Lucic in Montreal. It would require a bad contract going the other way to make it work. Something like this:

To Mtl: Puljujärvi and Lucic.

To Edm: Alzner, Hudon and McCarron.

Mtl gives the Oilers what they need in cap space, a defenseman and 2 cheap forwards. Mtl gets Puljujärvi to play with Domi or Kotkaniemi. Lucic can play either on the 3rd or 4th line and the PP in front of the net.

f it doesn't work out for Lucic in Mtl, since he waived his NMC he may no longer have one as a result of it being waived by previously being traded so he can either be bought out, traded or sent to the minors. His contract has bonuses till the end. It's a bad contract. Don't forget that Lucic won a cup with Claude Julien in Boston.

If it doesn't work out for Alzner in Edm, he can be bought out next year for about 1.2 M a year for 4 years. Oil would have had a cap hit of 6 M for 3 years for Lucic and would save roughly 4.8 M a year on the cap.

Of course the price for this is Puljujärvi!
