Given the fact that Lupul has been injury prone in every season he has played, was considered a draft bust up until last season, is a defensive liability on the ice that reaches MacArthur/Raymond replacement level if he isn't producing,has one year left on his contract and could be hesitant to resign with the leafs especially if he still holds a grudge against Carlyle; it would make a lot of sense for Burke to at least consider trading Lupul for Luongo. However, given all that (doubt he'll be much more popular with AV than Carlyle) and the uncertainty of which Lupul shows up next year (draft bust Lupul or top 6 impact F Lupul?), I doubt Gillis goes anywhere near that with a ten foot pole.
