My guess is he would get about $6 or $5.75 but I think the term would be a bit shorter...teams would be worried about his injury history. So maybe 3-4 years instead of 5.
Lupul has been great for the Leafs. I personally think he is the leader on that team. BUT, if he was a UFA this summer, missing 67% of the season would certainly hurt him.
