Thanks Kreskin

There is no doubt that Lucic was a far better player this season than Neal was last season. Both players came in with vastly different expectations with people expecting Lucic to be a bottom 6 winger when Neal was thought of as a 30 goal first line, first PP type signing.

With so many teams tight to or over the cap next year I would t be shocked if the league grants each team a Covid buyout to rid themselves of one bad contract. If so both players will likely be a causality. Having said that I am not sure how many owners are looking to spend that much more money considering the millions already lost.
