Yes the shot injured him, but Lupul needs to take some blame here too. Lupul knew that standing in front of the net was risky and he also knew Phaneuf had a wild-child shot but yet he gambled, that gamble cost him 8 weeks. As much as Phaneuf is to blame so is Lupul.
Ya good luck explaining that to your coaches.

Forwards are supposed to screen the tender when a shot comes from the point.

The onus solely rides on Dion for taking a responsible shot when his teammates are between him and the net.
