Doubt flames do it.

15 Jul 2021 16:47:30
Doubt montreal does it.

Lucic has more points, and contributes way more physically. I’d much rather keep Lucic, especially if Calgary is retaining 50% of his contract. No from Calgary.

Casual nailed it.

Lucic is still hated in MTL for spearing groins.

Uhhhhh, why would the Habs want a plug like Lucic. Makes no sense.

16 Jul 2021 14:23:06
@bossman67 why would flames want a plug like Byron? Lucic brings more to the table so it’s safe to say he’s the more valuable asset between the two.

Byron is among the fastest players in the league. He is a top notch penalty killer he plays a defensive role in Montreal and matches the offensive output of lucic eventhough lucic is used in much more of an offensive role with the flames, neither player is going to make an average team a contender but Byron is considerably more valuable then lucic.

@Habby2 Even if you were right (and I way you're wrong) with 50% retention the Habs would only be paying Lucic 2.625 and the Flames would be paying Byron's full 3.4 mil plus the other half of Lucic's salary.

Effectively the Flames would be paying Paul Byron 6.025 mil a year. 775k more than they pay Lucic now. Though you don't agree the Habs would be getting the more valuable player and saving 775k.

No matter how you look at it'd be a great deal for the Habs and a terrible deal for the Flames.

Besides all that the Flames had Bryon in the first place. He was so impressive they put him on waivers where the Habs plucked him from. :)

16 Jul 2021 20:06:48
Even with the retention Byron has more value.

MoxNix nailed it, I didn’t want to explain that thoroughly lol.

Yeah and when they put Byron on waivers he was still putting up better numbers then lucic lol. go figure.
