Agreed. I think Lupul's value by every idiot on HF who is not a Flyers fan is completely incorrect. All those who think a 50+ point forward is a salary dump are the same people who think if we dumped Briere it'd be a salary dump. While it might appear that way from a Flyers' perspective it certainly isn't from the perspective of the GM acquiring a top line forward, which Lupul is on quite a few NHL squads.

IF we trade him we will get decent value.

That being said I really do expect one of Jones or Carle to be gone. Sbisa is coming up full-time so why drop a 50 point forward when we have redundancy on the backend?
