Okay, that's the only pic I have of Boston Bruin, Milan Lucic...and it'll do. Last night in Vancouver, Lucic tallied three points and was selected first star after his Boston Bruins beat the Vancouver Canucks, 3-1.

A Vancouver native (had a successful run with the WHL's Vancouver Giants, and was the captain of Team Canada during the anniversary tournament of the Canada/Russia Super Series), Lucic must be on the minds of many Canuck fans today...why didn't we draft him? Good question...I thought that as well. So I found this extensive answer to that question at

Hockey writer, Ron Spence examined that question back in 2008. And as most Canuck fans might realize today...even back then we wondered why didn't we draft Milan Lucic.

Check out Ron Spence's article, Why didn't the Canucks Draft Milan Lucic.

Happy Trade Deadline Day, everybody :o)
