Injury Prone Player
I made a list of injury prone players that I will be adding to my pool draft list so I thought Iíd post it to get some opinions on who could go on the list or who should be taken off. These arenít necessarily players that should be avoided (even though I have them marked with a skull and cross-bones on my pool list :D ) but rather should be taken with caution. Keith Tkachuk is a good example as heís only played more than 70 games twice in the past 6 seasons but is a PPG player, or close to it. He gets his points...

The following is what I have so far. Feel free to add or subtract from the list.

ANA: Rucchin, Leclerc, R. Niedermayer
ATL: Savard, Stefan
BOS: Lapointe, Sergei Samsonov?, Joe Thornton?
BUF: Warrener, Afinogenov?
CAR: D. Markov
CHI: Daze, Kapovtsev
COL: Blake, Foote, Morris?, Paul Kariya?
DAL: Arnott, Turgeon, Boucher
DET: Yzerman, Devereaux, Wallin, McCarty
EDM: Smyth, Isbister, Laraque?
FLA: V. Bure
LA: Palffy, Allison, Deadmarsh, Miller, Belanger
MIN: Hendrickson, Bombardir, Marshall, Dowd
MTL: Koivu, Audette, Souray
NSH: Legwand, Walker
NJ: Adrian Foster :rolly:
NYI: Niinimaa, Peca?
NYR: Lindros, P. Bure, Malakhov, Leetch?
OTT: Schastlivy
PHI: Leclair, Williams, Roenick
PHO: Savage
PIT: Abid, Rozsival, Melichar, Lemieux?
STL: Weight, Tkachuk
SJ: S. Thornton, McLaren
TOR: Antropov, Nolan, Roberts, Nieuwendyk, Mogilny?
VAN: Ohlund, Linden, Salo, Chubarov, Lindgren
WSH: Zubrus, Josh Green

ATL: Dafoe
BOS: Potvin
MIN: Fernandez
PHI: Hackett
PHO: Burke
STL: Brathwaite
VAN: Cloutier

Should they be on the list
BOS: Sergei Samsonov, Joe Thornton
BUF: Afinogenov
COL: Morris, Paul Kariya
EDM: Laraque
MIN: Dowd
NYI: Peca
NYR: Leetch
PIT: Lemieux

I don't think Lemieux is really injury prone... he just has health problems that keep coming back and making him miss a lot of games.

Yayo 09-28-2003 05:38 PM

On the Avalanche, replace Derek Morris with Adam Foote.

thestonedkoala 09-28-2003 05:45 PM

On MIN: Replace Brunette with China Doll I mean Darby Hendrickson, Brad Bombardir, Jason Marshall, and Jim Dowd...

That list isn't any bit correct until the name Adrian Foster makes it.

Except this is an NHLers' pool draft, I'm assuming. :D

JasonMacIsaac 09-28-2003 06:36 PM

Someone may take Foster...................................

Bruzin 09-28-2003 06:50 PM

Girard is not injury prone. However, he may be after his recovery from that car accident. Until we know how he recovers, I wouldn't say he is injury prone.

Kyle McLaren is injury prone.
Jeff Hackett is injury prone.
Byron Dafoe is injury prone.

I also think that PJ Stock is injury prone. His style of play, and his size are an injury waiting to happen.

Dr GLU 09-28-2003 07:06 PM

Turgeon definitely needs to be on that list.

garry1221 09-28-2003 07:09 PM

boyd devereaux, jesse wallin

easton122 09-28-2003 07:12 PM

I would consider Justin Williams, Simon Gagne, Jeff Hackett, Felix Potvin, Peter Forsberg, Owen Nolan, Nikolai Antropov, Manny Fernandez, Dan Cloutier, Ed Jovanovski, Mike Comrie, Brad Stuart, Maxim Afinoganov, and Rhett Warrener injury prone also.

Evilo 09-28-2003 07:35 PM

Mario is not "multiple" injury prone. He's ONE injury prone, the same injury that keeps on coming. So I can understand he's on that list, but..
Straka. No. Urban legend.
Morozov. No. He missed some time last year but before that it was OK.

For the Pens, should be on the list : Rozsival.

Sergei Zubov 09-28-2003 07:36 PM

NSH: Scott Walker...

Mike Comrie has had one injury in his entire career and suddenly he's injury prone.

Where is Mattias Ohlund, Trevor Linden, Janne Niinimaa. They're injury prone.

Waveburner 09-28-2003 08:34 PM


Mattias Ohlund
Sami Salo
Trevor Linden (recent years)
Artem Chubarov
Dan Cloutier

EDIT-Mats Lindgren(prolly the most injury prone, but if he gets taken in a hockey pool, faceoff win % better count somehow, otherwise...)

The Boot 09-28-2003 10:25 PM

Yeah, Ramzi Abid is injury prone. :(

Ajacied 09-29-2003 10:27 AM

Phillipe Boucher, if he wasn't so unlucky with injuries right after he got drafted he would have gotten a lot more respect these days.

Turgeon is also pretty prone, Arnott is also sensitive for the minor ones..

Wildcat 09-29-2003 10:53 AM


Players under the suggested category I'm not so sure about adding or removing from the list.

Lemieux has been left on since he will miss games but he'll exceed a PPG anyway so it almost doesn't matter. If there's more votes to take him off I will though.

Lam7825 09-29-2003 04:16 PM

gotta keep Jumbo Joe Thornton away from those bacteria-filled elbow pads!
don't know if you can consider staph infection an "injury" or not....but it did put him in the hospital last year.

also, add Samsonov please.
and Berard- permanently injured list w/that right eye.

and do you count Jeremy Roenick's glass jaw?
