yup, sounds logical.



....what?
Komi is a terrific 7th d-man on just about any team in the NHL
Lupul might not be able to crack the top 2 lines on any other team in NHL
They make basically the same amount of money...
Hence Lupul is in that position by default - not because of performance.

If he was playing 4th line minutes making the same $$$ everyone would be in an uproar similar to Komi. But unfortunately we do not have depth upfront to make this a reality.

A better comparision would be if Joey Crabb was making 4.25million and could barely crack the 4th line. Who's contract would you rather shed?
