Claude Giroux. $821K.

Knuble gives you the same production for half the money and twice the intangibles.

Lupul has to go. His contract next year sticks out like a sore thumb on this team. We're in major financial trouble, we don't have time or the cap space to wait for him to earn that deal. His offensive production, in my opinion, isn't worth $4.25M.

Also, you named a bunch of players who bring things to the table that Lupul doesn't. Most of them are of the power forward variety. Lupul is a soft, one dimensional goal scorer who really doesn't score that much.
