The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed forward Joffrey Lupul to a five-year, $26.25 million contract extension through the 2017-18 season.
Lupul is currently making $4.25 million in the final year of his current deal and would have been eligible to be an unrestricted free agent this summer.
“Joffrey has proven to be a dynamic offensive player and since joining our hockey club he has fit in extremely well with our team,” said Leafs senior vice-president and general manager Dave Nonis in a statement. “His alternate captaincy is well deserved and, by signing this extension, we look forward to him playing a large role with the Leafs for many years to come.”
The extension includes a limited no-trade clause, which allows the Maple Leafs to request a 14-team list from Lupul.
Lupul, 29, played 66 games in 2011-12 and ranked second on the Leafs in goals (25), assists (42), points (67) and power play goals (eight).
At the 2012 NHL All-Star Weekend in Ottawa, he was the assistant captain for Team Chara and scored two goals in the NHL All-Star Game.
In 517 career NHL games with Toronto, Anaheim, Philadelphia and Edmonton, Lupul has registered 323 points (151 goals, 172 assists) with 313 penalty minutes. The Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta native was originally selected seventh overall by Anaheim in the 2002 Entry Draft.

@DarrenDreger: 5 year ext for Lupul. $5.25 average salary. Ltd no-trade. Leafs can request list of 14 teams. #TSN

I know it's not the same position, but this deal makes Edler's look that much better.

Good deal for Lupul. Don't think he left much on the table though.

Players only leave $ on table to stay on a winning team or if they were drafted by a team and spent their entire career there. Not too many UFA come to TO for a number of reasons and being a bad team is one of them.

TO overpaid Lupul by 500k per year.

Lupul paced for 83 points last year. The guy has missed a lot of games in his career, so that's the big drawback when it comes to Lupul.

But 200+ pound winger who can score 83 points is pretty valuable. Only 4 players last year finished with more than 83.. and only 7 players finished ahead of Lupul in P/G.

Also key is that the contract doesn't begin until next year.

I'd take Lupul on my team any day at just over 5M per year vs. Burrows or Booth at 4M+. If TO overpaid, you must feel terrible about those two contracts.

That's a fair deal for Lupul. He's a good player in Toronto and has chemistry with Kessel.

I won't compare Booth, as he doesn't have the benefit of the Sedins or Kessel. He has put up good points in the past and I suspect he will do that for Van as well.

Burrows has similar points to Lupul, but has been more consistent due to having the Sedins as linemates. Lupul will probably experience the same success with his high scoring linemate (Lupul gets most of his points as assists). Burrows has proven that he can score without the Sedins and can also be considered a "clutch' player. IMO, Burrows brings a lot more to his game. He is fantastic defensively and can play a variety of roles on his team. His +/- is always good (unlike Lupul). I would prefer to have Burrows on my team over Lupul.

overpayment is all relative to the team. Lupuls contract is good compared to what he may have gotten on the open market, fits the leafs cap so its a good signing. If you are comparing to the canucks then yea he got overpaid. Doubt LA, Chicago, Vancouver think its a good signing when the comparable's are Sharp and Burrows, Brown.

Booth would have finished 9th on the Leafs last season in scoring. That's the brutal Leafs team. And a couple of the scorers who beat him were defensemen.

I don't know what makes you think he'll score more points in the future; other than he's a Canucks player and your a Canucks fan.

It's hard not to be positive on the Canucks. Almost all players on Toronto don't have + because they're just a bad team. Even Kessel has minus but it seems as if the Leafs +/- are getting better so I would bet that lupul puts up a good 40points this season and is positive with Bozak and Kessel. That's a good line, good chemistry. I think his contract is worth it being in Toronto.

Booth has had quite a few 20+ goal seasons. I was commenting that I think he will continue along those lines. I was not comparing him to Lupul.

Again, Burrows is the superior player, as he is more complete and adds so much more to the team.

Not many players can do what Lupul does when healthy.

I'd take Burrows at $4.5 mil over Lupul at $5.25 mil any day, especially when he was making $2 mil chump change for the past 4 years and has had multiple 30 goal scoring seasons with output of 60-70 points. Plus Burrows is clutch, Lupul not so much.

Plus Burrows is also a defensive stud in his own zone compared to Lupul. Burrows is also an agitator and does anything to give the team a win. Burrows >>>>>>> Lupul.

Difference is that Booth never signed that contract in Vancouver, he signed it in FLA and that is why he has been overpaid. While Lupul has been signed by TO and has been overpaid by them. IF Booth were to sign with Van, he would be signed closer to $3 mil.

Lupul was only able to get 83 points because he played on the Leafs. You guys think Lupul can put up those numbers on the Canucks? Not a chance. Average player having the oppurtunity to play a weak teams 1st line. He over achieved last year.

One good year, playing for a big pay day by just focusing on points. With a history of injuries.

He is a 50-55pt player.

Now he is paid long term, he will vanish.

He's injured with an arm injury after taking a shot from Phaneuf. This doesn't look well. The leafs did win 5-2 without him so that's good though! :) Nazem Kadri is doing great!
