This is a good deal. Lupul got 4.25 million when he wasn't playing nearly as well in a smaller cap world.

People on this board will never be happy.
Agreed, he doesn't even take up 8.2% of the cap space.

When he signed his current contract that he is on he took up 7.5% of the cap space. He is much better now than then but only taking up a little bit more cap. Fair deal.

I believed we were looking at a 1-2 year deal in the 6m range or a 4+ year deal closer to 5m. 5.25m is extremely fair in my opinion.
