no home-team discount here though. Unless you believe that Lupul really is a PPG player and won't have his history of inconsistent play and injury issues continue.

Big thing here though is that this signing may have been necessary to get Kessel extended moving forward.
11-12: 2.50 points per 60 minutes
10-11: 1.60 points per 60 minutes
09-10: 2.48 points per 60 minutes
08-09: 2.03 points per 60 minutes
07-08: 1.94 points per 60 minutes

11-12 might go down as a career year, but I think he should atleast be a 60+ point winger with top line minutes alongside Phil the Thrill.
