Big fan of Lupul, and I'd want to wait another year before deciding.... Although if I had to decide now, it would be Krejci > Lupul.

Lupul's biggest injury was a rare injury that is non-recurring (Blood infection) so I think his injury history is a little overblown (although there is some worries when it comes to his other injuries). Lupul has also shown a lot of potential since being drafted, putting together a great season with the Leafs this past year.

Personally, a deal around Lupul and Krejci intrigues me. Giving the Leafs a possible future first line of:

Kadri - Krejci - Kessel (Bad acronym though....)

That's a solid line, with Kadri's 2-way game improving, Krejci's good 2-way play, and both Kadri and Kessel's great offensive hockey IQ..... I can see that line doing very well in the offensive zone and alright-good in the defensive zone as well (something that would be nice to see...)

edit: JVR - Krejci - Kessel could be an alternative line
