I was watching this game when this happened. An oilers player had been knocked into the boards, so Lucic just runs a guy nowhere near the puck and proceeded to tackle him and punching him the whole time.. disgusting, and Lucic should be suspended multiple games…. sick

Here is an interesting take on this from TB local paper:

“You know, there’s nothing wrong with that,” Edmonton coach Todd McLellan said. “We felt that a player took a liberty with Kris Russell. I agree with the liberty part of it and part of the reason we have Lucic here is to take care of teammates and he did that.”

You know, that’s just a bunch of BS McLellan.  Maybe you’re just trying to act like this is normal so the NHL doesn’t give him more than 2 games, but that’s not right.

Watching Lucic hit him away from the play and then proceed to punch him in the head numerous times while he’s in a vulnerable position - that’s a great way to give someone a concussion, and that seems like that’s about the only thing he is going for there.  Not a clean fight where both guys drop the gloves and settle something - no, this was about putting the guy in a position where he couldn’t do anything and proceeding to punch him in the head as much as possible before any of his team mates or officials can step in to pull Lucic off the guy.

This is the BS the NHL and the Players Association should be fighting against.  Instead the PA will work with Lucic to mitigate any possible suspension.

Remember Abby on Blunden, that was a fair fight:

Lucic should have been out of the league a few times. Amazing he keeps getting away with this.

You’d think the league would care that this was not at all a hockey play - instead a mugging totally away from the puck. And, that Lucic continually ignores two officials and refuses to let go of Joseph and instead continues to grab and shake him while he’s prone on the ice. When an unhinged thug like Lucicwho has a history of this kind of behavior - threatening to “kill” an opponent in a handshake line of all places - attacking opponents away from the puck on other occasions - you’d think the league would be concerned that he simply does not listen to or follow the directives of officials. That combination makes him a danger on the ice.

And McLellan is just embarrassing himself and pandering to his locker room.
He obviously would not think any such think if a player in an opposing jersey did it.
