Bruins' Milan Lucic Turned Down 2 Offers Before Returning to Boston

Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic decided he wanted to have a reunion this season and made his way back to bean town as an unrestricted free agent. After several seasons with the Calgary Flames, it was time to move on and Lucic couldn't be more excited to get back to having a B on his chest.

Turns out the veteran enforcer had several contract offers to consider this summer. Lucic confirmed via Spittin Chiclets, that he also received interest from the Chicago Blackhawks and Toronto Maple Leafs. The Leafs are worth mentioning as general manager Brad Treliving brought Lucic into Calgary and was very familiar with the player.

Lucic said no to being a 'Leafer' and decided heading back to Boston made the most sense. He signed a one-year $1 million deal and is coming off a season where he put up seven goals and 19 points in 77 games. He showed this summer via the World Championships for Canada that he still has lots left in the tank.

As for the Blackhawks, they decided on Corey Perry after Lucic said no, and the Leafs went with signing Ryan Reaves. 

Blackhawk and Leaf fans....would you rather Perry, Reaves or Lucic?
