Bruins Strength Coach Thought Milan Lucic Was A ‘Stringbean’ At 2006 Draft Combine

The Milan Lucic that has become one of the NHL’s top power forwards wasn’t a huge physical specimen before joining the Boston Bruins. In fact, Bruins strength and conditioning coach John Whitesides thought Lucic was a “stringbean” at the 2006 NHL draft combine. “They all told me how tough Lucic was,” Whitesides told The Boston Globe’s Amalie Benjamin. “I was like...

Loui Eriksson A Great Fit For Bruins’ Top Line Alongside David Krejci, Milan Lucic

The Boston Bruins need a first-line right winger after the free-agent departure of Jarome Iginla, and the search for his replacement should not extend beyond the team’s NHL roster.

Lucic regrets handshake-line actions, but isn’t apologizing

The wrist injury Milan Lucic suffered in Game 7 of the Boston Bruins second-round playoff series against the Montreal Canadiens is healing quite nicely, thank you very much. But the ignominy he and the Bruins suffered in that same game, well, that’s taking a little longer to wear off. Shortly after the Bruins lost Game 7 of that series on home ice and were bounced from the playoffs...

Lucic got caught with his professional pants down, and that speaks poorly of him, and us

I don't mean to spear this to death, but I'm gonna give it a try: My final take on the handshake line shenanigans is this: Milan Lucic is paid $6 million dollars a season to be a bully. He very, very evidently doesn't respect his opponents, and based upon the league's ridiculous, "Past precedent = you CAN spear that" logic, it's clear that the NHL...

Milan Lucic To Dale Weise & Montreal Canadiens After Bruins Game 7 Loss “I’m Going To (expletive) Kill You Next Year”

  Like with any sport whether you win or lose, you should always respect the game.  To do this you have to have class by being humble and keeping your emotions in check and make it look like you can not tell whether you win or lose. That is not to say you can not celebrate for your accomplishment, or feeling vulnerable after experiencing the agony of defeat. The point is, you should...
