Flames Flames trade Neal for Lucic (Oilers retain 12.5%) and conditional 2020 3rd

News Update

The Calgary Flames announced today that they have acquired forward Milan Lucic from the Edmonton Oilers along with a conditional third round pick in the 2020 NHL Draft in exchange for forward James Neal. Edmonton will also retain a portion (12.5%) of Lucic's remaining contract.



Bob Stauffer @Bob_Stauffer
All signs pointing to a Neal-Lucic deal coming to fruition.
Potential fresh start for both players

Jason Gregor
@JasonGregor
Just got a text today, Lucic would waive NMC to go to Calgary, if indeed a trade can be made. Interesting how things evolve. If, and I'm not say it will, but if a deal occurs, it would add some spice to the #BOA.

Nick Kypreos @RealKyper
Milan Lucic days as a @EdmontonOilers are over. With Lucic waving his no move clause it opens up the trade to @NHLFlames. At this point sounding like a 1 for 1 trade for James Neal. @NHL

Eric Francis @EricFrancis
Can confirm deal to send James Neal to Edm for Milan Lucic isn’t done yet, but is close. Oilers would include a conditional draft pick and retain some of Lucic’s salary when its completed

Elliotte Friedman @FriedgeHNIC
Just following up on @GenePrincipe and @RealKyper — only Lucic/Neal involved with EDM retaining some money and including a conditional draft pick.

Bobby Margarita @TSNBobMcKenzie
I do feel obliged to say this: the Lucic-Neal CGY-EDM trade is one for one. ��

Would have rather kept Neal. So gross.

Neal for Lucic + Puljujarvi?

Hopefully Bennet isn't on the way out too, would hate to see him go to the Oilers..

One of many who is too boring; thinks that there should be rules regarding grammar in custom user titles, and also makes moderators wonder if there is a charachter limit here. I mean come on- you would think that would be a limitation in the software

If this is true, then Brad Treliving has taken complete leave of his senses.

Will wait for details but this is bad if its a straight up one for one trade.

This simply does not make sense. Neal has the better chance of bouncing back, has a lower cap hit, and can be bought out.

what the ####
