Fantasy Impact: The two Alberta rivals have decided to unload bad contract situations on their respective ends of the spectrum. Lucic may not be what he once was during his days in Boston, but he does have postseason experience, which can be a big plus for the Flames. Calgary took a huge step forward last season, and they appear ready to go even further in 2019. Expect Lucic to have an immediate impact on his new team.

Fantasy Impact: This was the missing piece to the puzzle most people lacked when there were questions about trading away a former #1 overall pick in exchange for a defensemen (albeit a good one). Lucic has high fantasy potential, especially if he meshes well with all that young talent the Oilers have. It may not show up in many fantasy leagues, but his veteran leaderships will pair nicely with his physical nature and willingness to hit anyone not wearing the same jersey. Those traits will open up the game for the extremely talented skaters & scorers the Oilers have.
