If you quickly take a look at the Calgary Flames cap situation, you can see one if not thee worst contract in the NHL, and a lot of questions marks..
The top paid Calgary Flames:
1. Jonathan Huberdeau
2. Andrew Mangiapane
3. Mickael Baklund
4. Milan Lucic
Yes, you viewed that correctly. Lucic is making more money than the following players below that are in the NHL:
J.T MillerJoel FarabeeAlex Tuch
Jacob VranaDavid PerronDrake BathersonBryan RustKasperi Kapanen
Rikark RakellJonathan MarchessaultTyler ToffoliTomas TatarEvander KaneElias Lindholm
And... the list goes on, so yes, Milan Lucic
is one of the worst contracts in the NHL as he is making $5.25 million per season for just one more season, the Flames currently sitting at just $2 million of free cap space, not much at all to work with.
The Boston Bruins on the other hand have a nice chunk of cap left for more remaining pieces, and a possible throwback lineup may return..
Talks have picked up between formerly retired Boston Bruin David Krejci, he is expected to re-sign with the Bruins on a one year contract, and Bergeron is also expected to play one last season before he retires, NHL insider Jimmy Murphy mentioned that the Bruins may try and swing a trade for Milan Lucic
in Calgary, to reunite him, Kreci, Marchand, Bergeron is others for one final year in a Bruins uniform. How cool would that be??
