08:25 AM ET 09.25 | For some insight into the playing field that is the lockout, a Red Wings exec who had taken a shot at players -- and Milan Lucic specifically -- was also fined heavily by the NHL. The B's power forward had heard about [Jim Devellano's] comments, and still couldn't quite understand why he had been singled out in a wide-ranging conversation with the candid Devellano. "I guess I must be Grade A prime beef. I think we're pretty good cattle if you're looking at it that way," Lucic said with a laugh. "You definitely as a person don't like to be called "cattle." You'd think people would treat you better than as just an animal. Obviously he's got his name on the Cup a lot of times. I'm not going to say anything to disrespect him."

The NHLPA would do themselves a large favour P.R. wise if they didn't start playing the, "they treat us like cattle" card, expecially with the job market the way it is now

Lucic: 'I must be Grade A prime beef'

No, Milan. You sound more like 'Grade A prime turkey' to me.

I'd rather he be more concerned with stepping up his game, now that he has a new contract.

I guess the dope never heard the word "commodity" before. Or, if he heard it, he has no clue what it means.

Iused to think like that but you know what, I hate chippy players, I think theyalso put a marker on the backs of people on your own team....
And once you deliberately run over a goalie...I will ALWAYS have you branded as a coward

If you're gonna keep trying to get on the intellectual side of this debate it's gonna be hard to argue. BTW, I agree with you 100%. Fewer and fewer care every day.
