He actually said this in one of his interviews. He said he'll still fight, he'll just try to take it off....

It's funny how philly gets a bad rep for cheering when someone gets hurt one time but it goes un-noticed when other cities do it. Gotta love the national media.

Just got a tweet that said he has a fractured orbital bone and may need surgery. Can't get the tweeter's name right now as I'm on the road. Edit: it was Philabright who re-tweeted from Gormley.

Exactly. And if we brought this up, Devils fans would make up some awful excuse.

"We were cheering Zac Parise do a standing backflip, not Lappierre getting hurt"

Just got off the phone with Paul Holmgren and he’s awaiting word on whether veteran right wing Ian Laperriere will need surgery to repair the damage done to his right eye last night.
“There’s a chance he’ll need to have something done,” Holmgren told me.
Laperriere blocked a shot by Paul Martin early in the third period and there is a possible fracture of his orbital bone, above his right eye. If there is a break in the orbital bone, Laperriere could need to have a plate inserted to provide stability.
Laperriere needed between 60 and 70 stitches to close the cut he sustained above his right eyebrow. He has vowed to wear a shield when he returns and for the remainder of his career.
In other injury news, Jeff Carter and Simon Gagne had successful surgeries and the time frames for their returns remain unchanged, according to Holmgren.
Gagne will have an MRI in two weeks to determine how his right foot is healing and could be cleared to play three weeks from today. Holmgren said Carter appears to be done for the season.
If the Capitals close out their series against the Canadiens tonight the Flyers will meet the top-seeded Caps in Round 2, beginning next week in Washington.
Asked his thoughts of playing Washington, Holmgren replied, “Today I’m just happy to still be in it.”
Check back later today for an update on Laperriere.

I think he plays through the orbital bone thing.

Also, GKJ, you wanna add an Injury Report designation to this thread?

He'd be in the lineup tonight if there was a game, and if it was up to him.

That isn't something you necessarily can play through. If there is a stress fracture, another hit could drive the bone into the brain or eye and really ruin your ****ing day.

I would cheer for that... That would be great. Think he could do it?

He's not on the ice today according to a tweet I got, and neither is Boosh.

I think CSC was referring to another poster advocating Laperriere playing with a full cage instead of just the half-shield.

...yyyeah, orbital bones are nothing to **** with. If it isn't driven into his head that whole side of his face could basically sag because of muscle problems. My brother had this happen to him a few years ago on Thanksgiving, it was real creepy.

Update on Lappy:

http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/i...n_Round_2.html

Quote:
Ian Laperriere will not need surgery and will play in Round 2, Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren announced on Saturday.


The winger needed 60 to 70 stitches above his right eye when hit by a shot Thursday in New Jersey.

According to Holmgren, Laperriere suffered a non-displaced fracture of the orbital bone that won't require surgery.

"I think hell would freeze over before he doesn't play," Holmgren said.

Laperriere "looks a lot better today than yesterday _ other than it being very colorful," Holmgren said.

Laperriere did not practice Saturday; he will be re-evaluated on Monday.

Will Carter and Gagne be back for round two? Flyers are my second favorite team and I really want them to do well and those two players will be crucial if they are to win next round.

There's a better chance of Gagne returning than Carter but it is pure speculation at this point. The original sentiment was about three weeks for Gagne (from April 21) and six for Carter but that isn't a certainty.

This. Lappy won't be the same player he currently is; he can't fight, and throwing hard checks may not come so easily. and god forbid something were to dislocate the fracture.

Just had an idea for a Lappy "History will be made" video.

Him taking the shot to the face. Rewind. "What if Lappy wasn't an absolutely bad ass mother****er? History will be made."

I, of course, won't be making it as I am fairly retardo when it comes to such things. But if someone else has the means and wherewithal, have at it!
