I like this deal a lot. Lupul is a .9ppg player with the Leafs since they acquired him and has been rather consistent and has shown great chemistry with Kessel.
It is very difficult to find a veteran player who produces at this rate for the low 5mil range. Getzlaf and Perry are going to get more.
Term isn't bad either at 5 years. It definitely is manageable, at worst he regresses to a 2nd liner a few years from now but that's still not a terrible situation cap-wise.
Very low risk, imo. Lupul took a discount for an early payday. Works for both sides. Everyone knew he wanted to stay here given the fit. He's going to be a Leaf for a long time.
