Connelly’s Top Ten: Lucic Causes Me to Throw Up on Dean Wormer

CLIFF NOTES * I have said for five years to trade Milan Lucic but they hang onto him because he hits an occasional guy, floats around the ice and scores some empty netters. One minute into the game he fanned in front of the net with a chance to give the Bruins a 1-0 lead. […]
