He's certainly been convincing over the past 2 months, but that's kind of the whole point with contract year surges. If it wasn't convincing then no one would be considering giving him big money, and we wouldn't be having this conversation to begin with.
Here are the facts:
- Lowry never showed up to camp in the type of shape he did this year
- His entire career has been plagued with various injuries (could be attributed to his poor conditioning in the past)
- He's played at a high level at various points during his career but never for an entire season (not even close really)
- He's compiled a pretty long rap sheet of clashing with coaches and teammates during his 8 year career (including some rumblings out of Toronto last season)
Is it merely a coincidence that he finally put all these things behind him at the exact same time that he has the most to gain financially? Like you said, it's possible. But it's also possible that we see something closer to years 1 through 7 when he gets his pay day.

A key that opens many locks is a master key, but a lock that gets open by many keys is just a shitty lock
