I find this incredibly hard to believe. The things they can do with eyes these days is amazing and I don't understand how an eye socket cannot be repaired surgically.

Also I think Emelin was massivly over-rated, I doubt he would ever make the habs lineup. I don't even think he is our best Russian D-man prospect.

I doubt Svitov was in that same hockey rink. And in the off chance that he was, I'll bet he doesn't speak French.

Fractures of the orbital floor are quite common in sports, especially in hockey. In fact, this looks very similar to the injury Michael Ryder sustained a few weeks ago. I'm not worried long term, unless there is permanent double vision as a side effect that cannot be treated. RDS analyst Joel Bouchard had the same injury during his career, and that's why you can notice that his right eye is a bit lower in his face.

And by the way, there is zero chance of the eyeball "popping out" of the socket, as someone suggested. So overall I'm not worried, this is a common hockey injury with a good prognosis.

He still had his gloves on. The refs do jump in faster usually when it's clear one person isn't fighting back. I think they would have been quick enough to prevent the extra shots when he was on the ground. Damage may have already been done by then.

Not to contradict you but, last night kind of destroys your theory.

I doubt with the advances in health care this surgery couldn't be done without any complications. That being said there is risks in every surgery and his eye popping out is probably one of those risks. I'm sure he will get the best doctors available and hope hes able to fully heal.

It looked like they were going to step in and then Kubina dropped a glove so they backed off. But absolutely it does blow my theory. I'd still trust an NHL linesman over a KHL guy any day.

Have you been to an optomatrist lately ? Or do just love playing devils advocate, because even the OP agrees with me.

Really sucks for him if true.

I had zero hope of him ever being a contributor for this team, so from a Habs perspective this doesn't kill me.

They are jumping in quicker to fights now and there's the possibility of having a rule to which a fight is stopped as soon as one's helmet comes off like in the OHL. Assuming he plays with a visor this could have easily been prevented in North America.

Doesnt it just say that he cant play because it's broken and that their would be a risk of aggravating the injury, that the safe thing to do is to get an operation to fix it correctly?

That is my understanding of the situation. I don't see any reason to be worried long term. The injuries to Koivu and Berard were a lot worse (they both had ruptured globe) and no career was ended.

I know a guy who got a similar injury in a bar fight and based on what you guys said... It really doesn't look good for him and his career.
