Bruins Sign Lucic

The Bruins signed Milan Lucic to a 3 year entry level contract. It is worth the max 850,000, not including incentives, which would boost his overall pay and also be a cap hit, if he were to make the big club. Lucic was the 50th overall pick in the 2006 draft. Last year with the Vancover Giants (WHL) he recorded 30 goals, 38 assists, and 147 PIM. He was rewarded MVP of the Memorial Cup, where he recorded 7 goals and 12 assists in 22 games. Hopefully the Bruins see him in Boston sooner rather than later.

From what it sounds like, this kid is the real deal. We seem to have a good amount talent in Providence. That seems to be why we didn't go nuts on the UFA market. Homegrown talent... interesting concept.

I've been waiting for this one. This guy could be the next Cam Neely. I hope we makes the team on the fourth line with Reich and Thornton cause that would be the best checking line in hockey and could put up some points but they have too many players with one-way contracts.

Lucic wil hone his game in Providence and Vancouver for a couple seasons before he makes the team, but when he makes it he will be impact. Like when Bergie first made the team.
