When was the last time he flattened malkin or ovi? Players especially the big names need to fear playing him.
i lost my thought after seeing that mercedes girl
please keep posting
We have goal scores we got play makers we need him to be the fire. We need him to wake the team up. A big hit or a fight can do more to motivate a team than just a goal
Everybody needs to play a role and Lucic has gotten away from his. I want to see 30 goals but I want him to punish the other team also
I honestly don't think he is any less intimidating, you could argue that Lucic toning it down due to his importance on the team is almost identical to Zdeno Chara. Chara used to beat on people relentlessly but over time he had to tone it down given his importance to the team on the ice.
I loved it when Lucic fought everyone and hit everything that moves too, but to me he is a more complete player now and I would rather he scored 30 and put up 60+ points a season then spend half of it in the box. That is just me though and I do see where you are coming from.
I still think he has that edge about him and IMO he isn't less intimidating. I also think he fought and played the way he did to prove himself worthy of a spot. Now that he has established himself, perhaps he doesn't see the need to put himself at injury risk every time someone gives him a look he doesn't like.
I love what PC's done, now if we could add a piece that would bolster our offence and make our Power Play a threat again...
I still love watching the Lucic vs. Komisarek fight...especially the overweight guy with the beard going ape ****, like he just head that McDonald's was bringing back the McRib.
