Not a bad signing. Kind of a risk, but losing him and seeing him perform elsewhere would've been deadly for the Leafs.

Only on the Leafs would 5.25 million per be so outrageous for a guy who has 85 points in 90 games since joining the Leafs.

Look around the league, that's not a penny overpaid.

Risky. 5 years is a long time for a player like him, doubt he lives up to it.

Career high of 67 points... only played more than 66 games once in the past five years.

He was top 5 in NHL points last season when he got injured. Again, he's not being paid like a superstar. It's 5.25 million.

He clearly has taken another step since joining the Leafs. Literally since day 1 he's been great on the team. And his re-signing will likely help get Kessel locked-up.

Or wait till the end of the season...

If he reproduces the same stats hell still be worth the same money

If he regresses you sign him for cheaper

Yea, Carlyle acknowledged not putting Lupul in a position to succeed in Anaheim. Said moving to LW played a large factor in Lupul's emergence as a legit top-6 forward. They both agreed to let bygones be bygones.

Yes, there is risk in this signing; but if it works out as it has been, it will be a great signing and will be a great player with Kessel for many years.
Okay seriously?! what team?

This could look bad in a few seasons. 5 is too long.

Only Tor. resigning a player at the same or less then they could get on the open market is seen as a bad thing

Kesler signed 6 years x 5 million as an RFA, Lupul is a UFA.

Good job buddy.
