Considering the fact Lupul has always been regarded as a complimentary scoring forward his whole career, the trade with Winnipeg for Pavs seems quite on par with what a guy who only has this season under contract, and could possibly be looking for make more than Pavs and what he currently makes. While Pavs carries a nice medium sized but long term contract while providing more stability and is quite more proven than Reimer.
