I think you guys are all missing one crucial point. The core of the team, the "in crowd" so to speak all love Lupul and each other. It is obvious when Upshall got traded the whole team was pissed. Not only did they lose their teammate but they lost a good friend. Their play in following games showed it.

Now, we will let Lupul go (even though I dont think we will), and the team will be really pissed off. Say what you want about him being lazy blah blah blah, but he is still one of the only Flyers on this team that can actually SKATE through the neutral zone with the puck on his tape. The only reason Carter can is because hes so fast, the other two being Briere and Giroux. Richards can do it but more times than not it leads to a crucial turnover trying to make one too many moves.

Everyone should be far more concerned about "OFD" Randy Jones and Carle getting paid what they do when I've seen high school kids that play better hockey.
