Yeah. Except Grabo's a centre.
$5.25m x 5 years is too much for Lupul, and there's no reason it should've been done this quickly. The guy had one great year, the rest of the time, he's basically a 25/25 guy, and that's too big a commitment.
The Leafs should've waited out this year to see how he plays. At worst, he's going to be a UFA in a very strong class.
One of the things that the cap-circumventing deals saw was a massive increase in the salaries of the mid-level players, and with those deals now outlawed, the mid-level players are going to feel the brunt of it.
