Lupul was an impending UFAgent, so he had considerably more leverage. I'm sure if Benn was in the same situation, his deal would have been considerably higher. A better comparable for Lupul would be what Getzlaf and Perry end up getting, which should be alot higher than the Lupul deal.

A better comparable for Benn would be the deal Paccioretty got, which is about 4.5/year longterm. Similar players, but Benn is better and compensated as such.
