Edmonton: 28 pts in 81 gms (0.35ppg)
Philadelphia: 96 pts in 135 gms (0.71ppg)
Anaheim (v.2): 27 pts in 49 gms* (0.55ppg)
Toronto: 86 pts in 94 gms (0.91ppg)

* - Two injury-plagued seasons

No reason to believe he isn't just entering his prime and couldn't be a prime contributor for the next 3-5 years, IMO.
His numbers under coach Carlyle is around .55 PPG .. Do you thing the coaching change and more conservative system might effect his Toronto numbers going forward?

Lupul is a UFA at seasons end on an expiring contract, that is one reason to believe he might not be a prime contributor for the next 3-5 years.

Signature: There is no greater demonstration of Fan patience then to suggest to "Play the Kids " and be willing to accept the consequences of those actions..
