Good deal, he’s earned it for the way he played during the pre-season.

Vet who can play bottom 6, be difficult to play against and if injurys happen you can move him up the line up.

This is why all veterans must sign front loaded contracts, so if they get bought out they won't lose money.

Believe it or not because of how R. Suter contract was made, he'll make more money now than if he was never bought out.

He is not really a bottom sixer nor difficult to play against. More of a pp specialist goal scorer.

I've been waiting for this to happen since he scored 3 against the Wild in the first preseason game. Good deal.

Remember when Oilers fans were raving about how they won the Neal for Lucic trade?

Neal didn't have a NMC, so we didn't have to protect him in the expansion draft and they easily bought him out
and if Lucic is supposed to be the big bad goon why has he been invisible in the all of the BOAs since the trade especially in the goalie fight game
And how many 4 goal games has Lucic had because Neal had 1 vs. the Islanders

The Oilers still bought his contract out and have to pay the penalty while Lucic has been surprisingly good for us, I think that should signal that the Oilers lost the trade

the Oilers bought him put because they can since there was no NMC, If Neal was making 2mil or under he would totally still be on the team but his contract was to high so they bought him out, for the next 2 years the fLames are going to be paying more for Lucic then they are for Coleman. Neal was good for us to he and 2 hattricks while he was a Oiler but they keep putting him on the Taxi squad because there was no chance he was getting claimed on waivers because of he contract.
