    Fat

    Fat with a two assist night.  He's third on the team in assists even if he is struggling to put the puck in the net.  He now has 22 points in 34 games.  Over an 82 game season?  That's a 65 point pace.  That would be a career high in points for Fat.

    Is Fat playing the dominant physical game we know he can?  Not consistently.  Is Fat popping goals at an acceptable rate?  Nope.  Is Fat contributing to goals at a better rate than at any time in the past?  Yep.

    People wanting to cashier Fat underestimate how many ways he can contribute.

    Nobody hates their players like Bruins fans Book. Lucic is the style of player that other GM's frantically search for. Is he perfect? No, but he's pretty damn good. When he keeps his feet moving he's hard to handle. He's also done a nice job of ignoring all of the hurtful nicknames. Go Bruins!

    His speed straight up the ice is good.  He is just like a train.  A little slow to start but once he gets going.  "All aboard".  

    I love him.  I do question his compete level.  I dont want him anywhere but in a bruins uni.  Hes a rare bread and as you mentioned he is very sought after and guys like a tom wilson are compared to him when getting drafted.

    We know he doesn't have to score to have an effect on a game.  Get him in one of his slamma-bamma, rampaging moods and the other team has to acknowledge his presence whenever he "cowboys over the boards" (Jack Edwards) - so do his Bruin teammates.  With his blend of power and the scoring we know he can do, as a fan of the Bruins I'll live with his peaks and valleys.

    Re: Fat

       His lack of aggression, bothers me more than his lack of goal production.

    In the Buffalo game, Krejci got hit hard, twice on the same shift, by 2 different Sabres, and Lucic didn't even give either player, a dirty look.

    It's like, in his mind, he is now a top scorer, and no longer needs to play the role of a tough guy.

    I miss the old Lucic.

    I think sometimes Lucic forgets what got him to the NHL and he tries to play a skill, which clearly is not his gm.

    Re: Fat

    Lucic has skill. He just doesn't have elite skill. But if he's sacrificing a bit of his physical game for points and a better team contribution then so be it. Its what Neely did to became a force for the Bruins. Not saying that Lucic comparable to Neely though.

    I agree that he has skill w/ the puck. But that is not his best skill, being an intimidating force is clearly his best attribute. When he plays w/ that tough nasty edge he's a force.

    Re: Fat

    It all starts with his skating and being active.  Meaning his physical game is born from his skating game.

    When he plays like he did last night, his play jumps off the page.  Finishing checks, creating space and offensive opportunities result.

    When is is not skating, his play also jumps off the page.  He looks slow, lethargic and like he is standing around.  Offense looks out of sync, there is just no energy behind it.

    Keep skating Fatso, skate!

    Im not the least bit worried about lucic....Once playoffs start, its a different game and a new season. I know this is a shortened season, and there are still a dozen games left. He'll be fine. I think they do need to come out flying in the first round. It didnt seem to happen last year against the Caps.

    Re: Fat

    No doubt Lucic and Horton are doing everything they can the last couple games to keep their line together. It'll be interesting to see what Julien does with Daug and Jagr, not to mention any other guys coming. I imagine all new kids get to ride the Peverly train on the 3rd line, and mostly because Looch and Horton are doing what they need to do.

    Yea, it's a stupid, tired 'nickname', at best over-cozy, at worst pejorative. It might endear those who use it to each other, but it gets them no closer to Milan Lucic.

    Fat doesn't pass food at the dinner table, so  I don't want fat a** trying to look pretty making a pass when he should be shooting. Put a North End pizza on top of the net maybe fattie will shoot more.

    As long as he brings "it" playoff time, I'm okay with it. 

    He can't play full out all the time. No one's body can take that kind of pounding.

    I thought Chubby Checker and practically everyone else had a really good game last night.  The team really seemed to snap out of the funk.  A fun game to watch, and Cedfano burying Neil into the boards at the end was an exclamation point on a big win.  

    I hope the B's gets the Sens in the first round.

    I don't thnk anyone is saying "Fat" in an attempt to pretend they are buddies with Lucic.  I don't think anyone here even has the marbles to say it within 100 feet of the guy.  Its a joke.  Lighten up.  I like it, and I love Lucic.

    Plus, I mentioed it to my boy Cedfano while we were playing hacky sack and he said it was cool.

    Or the year before against the Canadiens.

    Re: Fat

    Have to agree with you there Dez and Book, but I hope everyone agrees that our love-hate with Looch has more to do with us knowing what he can do and not seeing it more consistently. 

    I still wonder sometimes how the keys to his game are so simple to recognize, yet so hard to bring out of the guy at times. I wonder if it has anything to do with his Scheuermann's disease. Do his 'mates say anything? Does Claude lay into him when he isnt skating and hitting (for the umpteenth game in a row)?

    The two things this team needs is more freight train Looch, Fat Milan Lucic and of course, more cowbell.
