He’ll just stalk him throughout the whole shift and then tackle and cheap shot him like he did to that Tampa player.

We've seen it over and over with young players getting faster and smarter every year. Lucic is done. He'll get a little slower each year and he's too slow to contribute now.
I really think it's getting to the point where teams shouldn't offer long term deals to any players 30+ unless at the time they are still very good skaters. It seems that guys that don't skate well just fall off a cliff at 30. Young players are coming into the league are better skaters than past generations and the league is getting faster.
