On Toronto, Lupul is a PPG player, and a perfect compliment for Kessel. We gain no benefit by trading Lupul for Ryan. It actually makes us worse off because we trade a top LW for a top RW spot that is already filled. Not to mention that Lupul accomplished more last year than Ryan did in any year.
I don't care if Ryan is worth more than Lupul. It makes no sense to make that trade.
Let's see Lupul have another good year before he's declared Joffrey "PPG" Lupul from now until the end of time. Lupul also played in the defense be darned Eastern Conference last year while Ryan played in the everyone drop to the goal line to block a shot Western Conference.
