BUFFALO -- With Milan Lucic headed for free agency, one potential fit that's been thrown around is the Oilers. Why? Because there's a guy who works there who already has experience paying Lucic a lot of money. So would Lucic, who spent last season with the Kings but could not come to terms on an extension, be interested in reuniting with Peter Chiarelli in Edmonton? "I'm open to them," Lucic told Thursday. "Open to all my options heading into July 1." Lucic, who spent the first eight years of his career in Boston, was traded to the Kings prior to last year's draft in exchange for the 13th overall pick, Martin Jones and Colin Miller. He had 20 goals and 35 assists for 55 points over 81 games in his lone season in Los Angeles.
