The Edmonton Oilers blockbuster trade of Taylor Hall for Adam Larsson signals how certain they are of their ability to land Milan Lucic in free agency. At the very least it bolsters the validity on a multitude of reports that already suggested as much.
You don't just trade one of the league's best two-way wingers, on a team friendly contract, without a contingency plan. And colour me unconvinced that Benoit Pouliot is that plan. The writings on the wall. Within a few days we'll be able to make it out in dollars and years.
That's a tough pill to swallow for the Vancouver Canucks, who've stomached more than their fair share of bad news of late. Lucic was Plan A. It didn't take a well-placed contact to figure out that much. It's back to the drawing board on Pat Quinn Way, and we're not even a day into free agency.
