And if he doesn't we're stuck with him for 5 years . Lupes had a big year in RW's wide open offensive system which inflated everyone offensive numbers , why do people think he can duplicate those numbers playing under RC's more defensive style .

Even if he puts up close to a point a game i still don't see him over 6 mil a year on the open market especially with the potential of the cap going down after next years fixed number .

Basically Nonis gambled saving at the most 750 grand against maybe not even keeping him next year . I don't see the risk/reward is this type of deal working in our favour . Nonis gave him the deal because outside of Kadri we don't have anyone that projects out to be a top 6 forward in our system . After 4 years of Burke restocking the cupboard that's pathetic .

My main point is i would have waited and if it cost me a few hundred grand more then it would have been worth the patience to see if Lupal was worth this type of investment .
