Even last year, Great season but ended in shoulder separation. Why give him 5 years @ 5.5? With the recent success, ill be honest I forgot about Lupul. I like JVR and the handful he represents.

Putting Lupul on the Top line wtih Bozak and Kessel will disrupt 2 lines. As JVR will be on a new line. The chemistry built up in recent weeks or months before Lupul return is erased for one player? Im not so sure u do that right away. Maybe start him on a 3rd line.

I like Lupul but: his injury history, his age and the long recent contract was for me too much too soon.
They resigned him too early. If they had waited they would now have the option of not resigning him at all or get him at a lower cap hit with less term.
