Here's a list of the players with comparable cap hit:

I don't think I'd take Lupul over any player on this list other than..... Grabovski.
If he produces like he has since he went to the Leafs, it's not horrible. The thing is you don't know if last year was a flash in the pan, or if he'll produce like that consistently. It's also risky cause of past injury problems. One positive of the deal is that he's had good chemistry with Kessel, and it's an incentive for Kessel to re-sign when he's a UFA 2 summers from now.

Good game in Buffalo so far.
