Milan Lucic has been traded to the Calgary Flames in exchange for James Neal.
It was not a good time for Lucic in Edmonton after he signed a seven-year/$42 million contract three off-seasons ago. Lucic had a good start to his Edmonton career in his first year with 23 goals and 50 points but the last couple of seasons have not been kind for the power forward as he had 10 goals and 34 points two seasons ago and slumped further to a career-low six goals and 20 points in 79 games. It appears that the speed of the NHL is something that Lucic cannot keep pace with and while he adds toughness to the Calgary lineup, he is definitely a botton-six forward with no fantasy value at this time.
