    That's actually a really good point. I never thought about that. How was Pronger allowed to do this while still under contract?

    Anyway, it's pretty easy to see that the Leafs organization doesn't want Lupul to be visible in at all. He made waves for one day talking about the Leafs cheating to get him off the books, and was silenced pretty quickly. Seems he doesn't like the organization much now, and they have no need for him. So neither side would want him to be present at Leafs events.

    He has the potential but have you seen his instagram? the guy has more potential to crush a six pack then to score another NHL goal with the gut hes got

    He has 20 goals, so he’s doing a good amount with the puck as well.

    All this while being on the line with the least amount of offensive zone starts

    Not to mention he's on pace for the most EV points he's had since 2013/14 when he had 70 points.

    2013/14 45 EV points
    2014/15 33 EV points
    2015/16 25 EV points
    2016/17 30 EV points

    2017/18 31 EV points in 69 games on pace for 36

    There’s a trend around here that any player who doesn’t look like Nylander, Marner, or Matthews up front all get classed as not doing anything.

    Not only that but the well documented mentorship he gives the younger guys is worth something too. Some folk do not understand the importance of this.

    Thing is some people will lament an acquisition and then never be big enough to admit they were wrong and they will continue to cast blame on the player just because they didn't like getting him in the first place. That is why we see absurd posts like the one you quoted.

    In fairness to some of these people they have never played hockey in their lives and do not appreciate the intricacies of playing on a team let alone a NHL high level team.

    We also sometimes see posters pretending to be a fan of a team that they actually hate. They then take pot shots under the guise of a fan of the team when they are not. They think they are outsmarting everyone though it's usually very transparent.

    It was Marleau who also gave that speech to everyone during the 2nd intermission in Ottawa when the Leafs were losing 3-1 and came back to win 5-3, which is was a turning point game for them and their success right after.

    Certainly. Some people just look at how many points a player gets. Often they don't even watch the games or have never played the game. This is not a slight on them but it is an experience that affords a better understanding of team dynamics.
