    Lombardi was super high on Lucic. That trade likely cost LA one of Konecny, Connor, or Barzal.

    Not to mention where Jones ended up and Colin Miller.

    Lucic had a good year as did LA, neither showed up in the playoffs.

    2 more years of term still doesn't account for the Oilers taking on another million in cap hit and downgrading a 10OA pick to a 20OA pick. If Edmonton was getting a better player then maybe, sure. But Phaneuf is equally as bad as Lucic, and much worse if Lucic returns to being a 50 point player which he probably will.

    Oilers would be smart to wait until after free agency. With players like Kane(objectively worse than Lucic) getting 7x7 contracts I bet he'd be considered a a steal at $6.

    Also it wouldn't surprise me if it's Oilers management putting out this info that Lucic wants out to try and save face.

    Dramatic much? Lucic chose Edmonton. I'm sure his family did too. He chased the money. Stop feeling bad for him.

    So his GF is basically saying " I want to go to a place where fans wont bother my bf when he plays like **** so we can comfortably spend our 7 mil per year"

    Why would Edmonton look to move him?

    Lucic isn't anywhere near worth 6m per year.

    Multiple teams are interested in him. He's a 50 point player with tons of intangibles to add to a team. 40 point, injury prone, locker room cancers like Evander Kane are getting 7x7 deals, in comparison Lucic IS a steal!

    Has anybody suggested Lucic to Minnesota for Parise? I imagine this would work out well for both teams in the end, if Minny was actually willing to do it.

    LUCIC
    - Signed for less money less years
    - Less injury prone, bigger, tougher

    PARISE
    - Signed for more money more years
    - More skilled, leadership qualities
    - Likely LTIR "retired" within 3 to 5 years

    Hell, no. The last thing that Boston needs to do is bring back Lucic. I know that some Boston fans still cling to the idea of having him on the Bruins, but they need to get over it. Besides, Boston has so many good, left-shot wingers with speed and skill: Marchand, Debrusk, Donato, Heinen and Bjork.

    I am thoroughly enjoying watching Chiarelli and Edmonton struggle with their self-imposed mess.

    C'mon. Pro athletes take run of the mill guff in every sport. I don't think this is a drastic situation. Also, putting this out there makes it that much harder to get a deal done

    To much pressure from Canadian media and fans, I feel like it gets to the point of harassment at times.

    It’s like the Oilers are teaching a how to not manage your assets level 100 course. Looch is still better than he showed last year and the only reason he got that contract was to toughen a soft team up, he even called out their lack of toughness in his debut interview. But I’m sure there are other ways to be feared than giving out that deal.

    So Lucic has 5 years remaining... if Oil retain 1.5M, I’ll trade them Sutter for Lucic + 2nd.

    Even salary exchange, but less term for oilers, plus they get a checking center.

    Nux win a pick and get tougher, which is something they reportedly want to do this offseason.

    I think ultimately that's where the Oilers will end up....getting rid of him will too punitive.

    Parise wouldn't waive his NMC. That's not a knock against Edmonton, I just think he plans on retiring here come hell or high water.

    Plus, while my opinion might be very different a year from now, right now I'd rather hang on to Parise. He finished the year very strong after his back surgery: had like 15 goals in March and was our best player in the playoffs before taking that freak elbow to the sternum. I think he still gets LTIR'ed within 5 years (and probably legitimately), but he may have a few very good seasons left in him.

    Seeing the way he was playing last year, the title should go like this :
    Lucic doesn't want to play anymore?

    I will no longer take this notion that TOR media is the biggest problem. Now it's a whole country? It's about time the fans own up to this.

    I remember the Dallas Eakins presser when he got fired. He brought his wife there to protect him or to keep the "dogs at bay".

    Perhaps many of the media who cover the Oilers are fans, but it's the fans who create a voice through media.

    It's a bad situation in EDM, but it's not his (Lucic) fault they traded Hall, drafted Yakupov, overpaid Draisaitl, etc.
