Joffrey Lupul

Simple question from an Oil fan to Philly fans, do you like the way this guy plays? Every time I watch this guy (going back to his days as an Oiler) he creates pretty much nothing and relies solely on hard work and good passes from teammates. The only thing I see in him is a good shot, other than that nothing but deadweight which holds a team back. I dont know maybe im just crazy and out to lunch here but what are all the Philly fans thoughts? Do you guys like the way he plays the game???

I thought he played really well last year when he was throwing his body around a lot, but this year he has been the Lupul you describe. I guess he decided he didn't have to work as hard after his nice contract extension.

Which NHL team will take him at that salary? The guy has a good shot, but he isn't a difference maker and yet he is being paid like one.

He got 25 goals this year. His contract should be less based on that, but not THAT much less, maybe .5 mill, im sure a team will take him. A team like the kings would be great to have him and get him cheap, for picks.

He played better today that he has in a long time but he only shows up when he wants too. He has the talent but not the desire. I won't cry if he leaves but somehow I'd be mildly surprised if they get rid of him.

He's a decent player, but he's streaky and when he's not scoring he's not doing much. I hope we trade him as he's not worth his contract.

Streaky doesnt even cut it anymore. He has become obsolete.

Lupul is trash. He can go **** himself for all I care. I hate people, anywhere in life, who make a ton of money and don't do ****.

Takes up way too much money on a team that's stressed for spare cap money and is overpayed due to an inconsistency worse then Biron's because he apparently lacks dedication or willpower to utilize his potential. We also have JvR to replace him for cheap.

Of course I don't want him on this team. Seems like a cool guy though.

Lupul is an asset to any team seeking:

-a rock solid beer pong player
-a XBox live partner
-Abercrombie-model hair

he's better off on reality rehab shows... this guy has shown me nothing this past season and holmgren really ****ed this team over with that extension he gave him... lupul loves it here cuz he can play like **** and get 4.25mil... if he's not traded and it's gonna be close to impossible with the amount he's gonna make the flyers are screwed... this guy is dead weight

he had 25 goals. the labels streaky and inconsistent really only apply if you see him as a 40 goal talent. the deal he has is maybe a mil too high as an inconsitent player and a mil too low if he learns to play 82 games. he doesnt have a consistent enough defensive game and doesnt create his own chances. i think hes the kind of player that needs to be the scorer on a traditional playmaker/sniper/powerforward line. which he wasnt this year. hes available for the right offer but im willing to try and let him at least play a year on the new deal before i say he isnt worth it.
