Wasn't there word that Lucic was considered for the Olympic Team...what he brings to a team is more than the goals, it's his hitting and fighting (which he doesn't do enough of).

I could do the trade without Hansen being a part of it.

That was such a joke, Lucic is a average player at best and the media played him into a potential Olympic spot.

No way was he even concidered!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm fairly confident he was invited to the Olympic orientation camp...

Power Forwards, like defensemens, don't develop straight out of the draft, they take time.

I wouldn't mind Lucic if we can manipulate the cap space enough.

I mind! He's getting $4 million for the next 3 seasons. That is insane. I'd be happy if he was getting Bernier-type dollars from 3 years ago. But, to pay $4mil a season, on the chance he develops into a great power forward makes no sense.

Salary Cap is up again

4mil in 59.4 cap = 6.734%

Sure, he might be over paid a little. But again, he's a local boy, he has shown he can play with his heart on his sleeve, and lead a team to a championship.

If only Salo's contract had been over this off season.... grrr.

Also, Bernier wasn't over paid, he threw hits!

bernier threw muffins.

Lucic is SEVERELY overrated. Weren't people calling hm the next Cam Neely?? What a crock of shit. Boy can hit. Boy can fight. Boy is still overpaid by about 1.5M, IMO. He's not worth screwing up our cap structure for.

Third liner on his own, second if someone carries him. Either way 4M is a joke.

i dont care what the cap is this year, its way too much for a guy that doesnt score 25+ a year. he gets more than burrows, a 30 goal guy the last 2 years. you can make the cap 100mil, 4 mil is too much for lucic by about 2 mil

Sorry to derail this thread but would you rather have the NDP running the province into the ground AGAIN.

Campbell is an asshole, but the Libs have been far better for BC than the NFG. They just need a new leader. Diane Watts seems to be a good option going forward. Heaven help us if Mustache brows James is give the keys to the province in 2013 , or Gregor Robertson. People seem to forget how brutal this province was 1991-2001.

Weak. The Liberals have been the shits. Lies, lies & more lies. The only reason their "books" looked responsible is because they were selling BC out to anyone who would buy. Take away that billion for BC Rail & the 1.6 from the Feds and what you have is the definition of brutal. Blob, I don't care for the NDP but at this point I'd take the Greens or the Conservatives....anything but these arrogant crooks. Worst party this province has ever seen, the full truth is yet to be revealed.

Ripping the NDP & praising the neo-Con "Liberals" is revisionist & selective history...both parties had ups & downs and thats just the eb & flow of any economy. New leader, lol. That party is done, its over. Sorry Blob what you are witnessing is the biggest implosion of a party since the federal Conservatives did a faceplant 2 decades ago.

Irregardless, are you going to tell me Campbell has been honest w/ the BC voters? Gimme a break.

This is so Eklund-esque.
