I'd definitely do Lupul and San Jose's 3rd for him before the draft. Minnesota gets a top-6 forward and a lower pick, but they get something tangible. Harding would get a chance to win the starter's job, and Philly would get some nice cap relief. It's fair to both sides.
A lot of it depends on the other moves Minnesota wants to make in the offseason. There is a pretty decent chance we don't spend all the way to the cap anyways in which case of course we'd match 2.6 let him keep Backs fresh and then deal him for more than a late 2nd at the deadline.

Lupul and San Jose's 3rd is fair value wise but I don't want to touch Lupul, we'll see what our new GM thinks I guess.
