Joffrey Lupul vs Nathan Horton

Which player would you rather have (contracts not included)

Both had injuries last season although concussions is a bit more serious. But Lupul has been known for some serious injuries himself

Lupul just had a far superior season to Horton and has the concussion factor going on. Lupul easily.

I'd be inclined to take lupul because of horton's concussion thing, but he brings an element to the game that lupul can not, so I'd take the risk and pick Horton

Both have always had question marks about their work ethic but Horton has been the better player over the vast majority of their careers. Lupul had a great year on a weak team and Horton was injured. Horton easily if he can get past the concussion.

Probably Lupul, but he's only had one good season. Hard to tell before this one.

Lupul is healthy now and should be able to put up at least 50 points, not sure about Hortons concussion so I'll go with Lupul for now. If Horton was healthy then I might change my mind.

Give me Lupes... I believe Lupul isn't as good as the year he just had and Horton may be a bit better than the year he just had but i just like lupuls game more.

Career wise and overall paying ability it goes to Horton in my opinion. However with the concussions and Lupul having a career year last year I can see why people would go with him, but again, I disagree.

I think if Lupul can maintain the confidence level and focus from the past season he's a better bet than Nathan Horton, who with his concussion and power forward related ailments might (unfortunately) have seen his peak already. The shelf life for injury afflicted power forwards isn't that long.
