    Vrbata for Lupul

    12 team H2H league, G A +/- PIM PPP SHP SHOTS HITS. I gave Vrbata and got Lupul in return. How did I do? I like Lupul's LW and RW eligibility and I think it's more likely he'll have another good season in him rather than Vrbata. I usually second guess myself so I like to hear what third parties have to say about things like this. Thanks in advance

    • Leafs head coach Randy Carlyle stated that the only thing he would lock in at this point regarding the line-up was that Lupul and Kessel would be playing together again. I don't expect Lupul to repeat his performance from last season, but in a shortened season, it will help that he already has chemistry with his linemate. I like the trade. Dual-position eligibility is a bonus.

    • I think you did well. Lupul had a breakthrough year last year and i would expect that trend to continue. people will forget the dude got hurt at the end of last seas. and he still put up 30 goals. Lupul has the higher ceiling no doubt, but the leafs will still be garb.
