burke will lose him for nothing, he will not get trading at the deadline.
I couldn't disagree more with this statement. Lupul was given a chance to revive his career here and he has regained his status in the NHL because of it and is now an all star player.

This is a very good stable situation for him as a player, he'll resign no doubt about it. He may actually sign a bit of a discount too like Liles. Lupul hasn't had much stability in his career nobody should be surprised if that's what he elects to do next contract.

I know it's hard to believe, but some players actually like playing in Toronto's crazy market.
