Lucic doesn't do his job, he is a first line player and does shit on the power play. He also makes a ton of money to skate around aimlessly and not hit anyone. Whenever he does decide to hit someone its dirty and draws a penalty. I loved the guy early on but his development has stalled like crazy. Him on the first line shows how much of a joke the Bruins are offensively
Boston finished 5th in the league in goals per game and had the best 5-on 5 goals for/against ratio in the league. Quite the offensive joke, I'd say.
Not every first line player is a special teams expert, contrary to popular belief.
Lucic doesn't hit? Last year, Lucic had 167 hits in 79 games and took 121 pims. Avery only had 115 hits in 76 games and took 174 pims. So what are you saying? And Sean Avery makes just as much money as Lucic for being a fraction of the offensive player. Although Avery does come up victorious in episodes of verbal diarrhea per million earned. There's always that.
Although I like your logic from the sense that it will aid my Leafs. We'll take Lucic. You can have Avery.
