    there would need to be a significant change in his baseline health and be ruled unable to play due to medical reasons to be put on LTIR. Any medical evidence to show being a hunchback is a deteriorating condition? Otherwise, my hunch is, his hockey cards will just list him as 1" shorter in 3yrs

    No Lucic contract hater on this forum has ever acknowledged my point that we have a trump card with Lucic, he's a clinically diagnosed hunchback, if/when his play falls off a cliff he gets Lupul'd or Horton'd and put on the LTIR. I know hockey people who didnt think Lucic would make it to 30 in the NHL with his back issue, but he's still chugging along.

    All that said, I have serious doubts whether Chiarelli goes after Lucic at all had he known what he had in Pat Maroon, but thats hindsight.
    Yup, his 5v5 production is really quite good this season - better than Chiarelli's buddy Seguin and recently departed Eberle!

    He's basically one of the better bad contracts (currently) that was handed out in that range and time period. Okposo is close, but Eriksson, Backes, Ladd - they are all on similar contracts, of similar length, and performing about the same, if not worse. It would have been great to sign Lucic for far less term or money. However there is a little thing called the market and reality that prevented him from signing for lollypops and good feelings. I'm currently happy with his contract.

    The issue was always the term and what happens near the end. I honestly don't know what will happen there, but we'll see I guess. The LTIR option is perhaps there, but I'm not certain it's something you can count on.
