The Daily: Milan Lucic’s ‘Lengthy Talks’ With the Blackhawks



He didn’t end up signing with the Chicago Blackhawks and ended up going back with the Boston Bruins. But some interesting news of note here:

The conversation makes perfect sense. A rugged forward known for playing tough with or without the puck, Lucic hasn’t seen the success he once did. After consecutive seasons of 10 goals, he dipped to seven and hasn’t seen much more in some time. But he would have filled the role of knowledgable veteran who would help Connor Bedard along. Though Lucic would end back up where he started, Chicago snagged Nick Foligno, Corey Perry, and Taylor Hall instead.

The DeBrincat Debrief

An interesting note today as the Alex DeBrincat to Detroit news settles:

Nearly similar figures 15 years apart. Hossa, of course, would leave Detroit to sign with Chicago. DeBrincat, the other way, with a season layover in Ottawa. Hossa ended up winning three Cups with the Blackhawks. Will DeBrincat see similar fortune?
