If your Brian Burke do you try and sign Joffrey Lupul this summer to a contract extension or wait until sometime next season? My thinking is if he does it early enough he can get Lupul at a better term because if he puts up the same stats next season, he will want even more $ and years the longer he remains un-signed.

If he only wants a 5 mil cap hit then give it to him as fast as you can. I don't see him scoring less than 60 points a year and 5mil cap hit is around what other players would have gotten.

It's very fortunate for the Leafs Lupul has another year on his deal.

Buy high, sell low. That's my philosophy.

I agree that he is the best player you can use to compare Lupul with.

It's better to overpay for someone who produces consistently than overpay for someone who doesn't produce.

That said, let next season play out and see how well he does, and give him the extra cash for proving himself, if it's necessary.

Not really. Neal was a 24 year old RFA.

Anyways.. either try to get him for 5mil, or wait to see how he goes next year then give him a big contract.

Or trade him.

If Lupul throws up 70-80 points next year how do you justify not paying him more than Grabo?

I love Grabo but his contract has created a ceiling that guys like Lupul, Kessel, etc. will leap over by a lot.

i would trade him this summer. if he reverts back to his old self, which is quite possible (especially if Kessel is traded) we get less in return the longer we keep him around. i am skeptical that he will repeat this years numbers ever again

Trade him, I don't have faith he will repeat his success. Who lately on the Leafs has other than Kessel?

i think he is worth in the $5 million x 4 years range. i know people are saying this year is a fluke but there has been steady progression in points through out his career. it has been injuries which has been his biggest problem making him look worse then he actually is.

having said that, lupul might need to be the piece that is moved in order to make a trade to improve this team. if thats the case its bad form to sign a guy to a multi year deal only to trade him although it does happen.

if given a choice i would rather resign lupul and move kulemin and or mac if necessary. lupul is just about the only player that kessel has shown chemistry with. even if we were able to bring in another rock star like nash or parise, there is no guarantee that they will have the same chemistry with kessel that lupul has

You must think Burke is going to be fired as well then this summer. Because as long as he is GM, Phil Kessel will be a Toronto Maple Leaf.

Wait and see how next season goes. If he continues with his pace keep him. Guy has the top compete level among our forwards except maybe Grabo. Infact I have toiled with the thought that he should be the Captain. He worked through alot of adversity to get himself here. He loves Toronto and has represented us well (him at the allstar game was awesome). I do not want to see him traded as of now with what he has proven to us this season, not only with points but the intanjibles he brings.

For me we trade him his value is at an all time high, and the only chance we've got to get a maximum return.

I'd trade him if we found an upgrade at no. 1 LW. Even then I might be inclined to place him on Grabo's wing. Don't re-sign him yet.

Trade him in a package for an elite goalie, then put Nazem ******* Kadri in his spot

I would give Lupul the C too unless we get someone better in the Offseason which I don't see happening. He would mak a better leader than Phaneuf. As for resigning him id we can't acquire a top 6 forward this offseason than resign him.
