RE 17-18 MILAN LUCIC: BIG ME

Everything about Milan Lucic is larger than life, including size, contract, presence and expectation. The 2016-17 season saw him hit his mark on the boxcars but the way he reached the total ran counter with his own history. The Oilers need 50+ points from Milan Lucic in 2017-18 but they need him to be far more effective 5×5 scoring. That is going to be the story of his season. (Big Me). MILAN LUCIC 2016-17 5×5

DOG DAYS

On the night of November 30, 2013, Laurent Brossoit stopped 30 of 31 shots and backstopped the Oklahoma City Barons to a win.

Yea, you heard that right.
