Uber Rumor!!

Post by Madcombinepilot » Mon Jul 05, 2010 6:09 pm

Bieksa, Hansen and 2011 2nd rounder for Lucic!!

This has all the marks of a Strachan style but... huh.

I would take it.

Don't see it happening, and we wouldn't gain any cap space - but an interesting trade nevertheless.

This is a non starter. Lucic makes 4 mil per and we need to dump salary not go up or stay the same. He would be a great pick up but nope it ain't happening.

I miss uncle Al......

Regardless if this is true or not, I'm not sure I like this trade. I'm not much of a Lucic fan. But he can easily win me over with his style from his first two seasons. I know he battled injuries last year, but none the less he was downright brutal when he played. His cap hit is atrocious as well. The hit is $4.083 million a year for the next 3 years. Not sure he's worth that considering he's yet to crack 20 goals in a season. Hell he only has 34 career goals in 199 career games.

MCP, is this a rumour that you started or is there a semi-credible source?
I'd take that deal for sure and deal with the cap issues after. I just don't see why Boston would want to make that trade.
Can't see it happening.

nah, I didn't start it. A guy I work with has family that works for the Bruins. He was spouting it over beers.. I never claimed it was credible, I just liked the thought of Lucic on this team :)

*edit* -- and according to him, Boston is approaching the Canucks..

Of course they are, they want to rid themselves of a 17 goal scoring $4 million contract.

Bad contract but if Gillis can squeeze him in here I LOVE it regardless. Hey we can always hope for a little Neely karma to come back our way and hope Lucic develops into a bonafide sniper.

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS
(these totals are compiled using the bonus cushion)
ROSTER: 21; CAP:$59.4m; CARRY-OVER PENALTY: $0.090m;
PAYROLL: $59.141m; CAP ROOM: $0.259m; BONUSES: $0.000m


possible? With Burrows rumored to be possibly out till december, that's another 0.7 cap hit savings, could even take off one of Perrault / Orekovich and have Hodgson in there as well, or a 7th defensemen. Heck, as long as the forward group is healthy, we could get away with 20 man roster and just have a couple guys in the minors ready to get on a place at a moment's notice.

Bieksa and Hansen traded
Alberts, Hordichuk wavied.
Raymond a 2.5m cap hit. plausible for a 1 year deal? Maybe a promise of a long term deal next year can entice him? Since Salo's contract will end and cap may/should go up again.


Lucic would instantly become our fan favorite, another BC boy, heck VANCOUVERITE! I don't know how many of you catch Giants games, but I remember he was a DOMINANT force that year he was leading charge...change of scenery away from Boston might revive his career also. Another body that can play all four lines as well.


if GM MG pulls it off, I'd pencil him in for GM of the year already.

here's one with Hodgson in it.

I'm near orgasmic just thinking of this line up. With 'Iron Man' Salo getting at least 10 games out of action (hopefully in the same stretch so it counts for LITR) It's very possible to carry an extra forward / d man as well, or *gasp* trade for a playoff veteran at the deadline and use the space there!

SOB is 1.6

and no, I'm about to kill GM MG unless he trades him for scraps, so SOB is out.
