He's getting up their in age, his career is continuously marred with injuries, his breakout campaign all happened with a guy of Kessel's calibre on his line- how many teams have only one star on their first line that would give Lupul the opportunity to work with someone of Kessel's talent? While his overseas resume is limited, it's not impressive. There's a lot going against Lupul and this lockout is now the biggest one.

I don't think any of the other players have much to worry about at the moment in terms of their futures...well actually there's Connolly. Poor guy.
Lupul will be fine as long as Kessel is playmaking for him.
