You'd put Lupul instead of Ashton and even Winnik or Booth?
1. Cap hit VS production
2. The emergence of younger high end talent
Essentially, its a free buyout opportunity. Lupul has yet to play a full season. Ashton costs ypou nothing. Winnick is the kind of player the Leafs have been after for years. He's a fantastic utility piece. He needs to be re-signed. Booth is on a 1 year deal.
