Lupul's contract looking more reasonable now

Small sample size, blah blah, the guy's proven he's not a one-trick pony and still has some pretty slick skills at his age. He's done nothing but produce since he's gotten back in addition to playing a gritty game and providing leadership. Glad he's locked up for the future.

When did it look unreasonable?

Lupul, JVR locked in at a sweet price. Just need to add Kessel for cheap. 6 mil?

I was happy with his contract when he signed it. Will be a good leader on this team for many years to come.

Leads by example.

Captain material IMO. "C" if not for Dion. Lupul talks to the media, performs on ice and has the personality to excite the crowd and team.

Dion hardly talks to the media. Sounds a bit shy IMO. Not saying he's bad (since we're not in the locker room) but lupul seems better

The Leafs have earned at least 1 point every game since Lupul's returned in the past 4. Now keep him on the first line!

His contract was a beaut from the get go. He is just making it even sweeter.

He should be the captain IMO. But yeah, a lot of people overreacted when we first re-signed him. I always thought it was a great deal.

It was always reasonable.

With that said, how does playing well for 6 games make it suddenly reasonable in your eyes?

Cap hit was always fine with me. I was a little worried about the term and still kind of am but right now I don't care. He is playing fantastic! If he keeps it up the contract of his will be a steal in a few years.

Looked better before, looks even better now.

We're going to see a lot of higher cap hits in deals now with the new CBA, good that we have Lupes and JVR locked down already.

The thing with Lupul is that he always contributes. Even on his off nights, he's at least still physical and does a good job along the boards. When other players on this team have off nights, they go invisible

When Getzlaf and Perry are getting 8mil+, I would take Lupul's contract at $5.25 mil in a heartbeat.

Only concern that we had when Lupul signed that contract was his health. Let's hope he can stay healthy and continuously provide us with the firepower we need.

When news of Lupul signing that extension I thought it was great then and still do today. What I think we can say is he proved that last season was no fluke and who knows how many goals/points he would have if he wasn't injured by that Phaneuf shot.

Kessel for 6, I highly doubt Nonis can swing that.

Lupul's deal was always reasonable. In fact I think it's a bargain.

And guys like Semin getting 7 mill per 5 years, you wanna see a bad contract in a few years? Semin will go back to being useless now that he got what he was looking for. He's not a team player or he would of stayed in Washington and not sign 1 year with a division rival. Lupul is a stud on and off the ice, definitely deserving of the C if they take it from Dion one day. The whole core is locked up for years to come at reasonable contracts, good cap management to be honest.

Lupuls deal was never unreasonable... He was an AllStar PPG winger last year. He's also our best leader imo, and is just a great guy overall. Add in the fact that he's running Lupes troops, and always attempts his best to get the crowd cheering is just gravy.

His contract is a steal. Go try to sign a PPG winger from free agency.... Heck, Semin just got a 7 mil a year extension.
