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.
I agree. I would actually prefer to include Lupul in the deal. I've already mentally committed to myself that the Flyers need to move Lupul because we don't really "need" him and the salary relief would be nice.
