It's shallow outside of the top 10 players. We are slated to be in the top 8 right now, think about it.

Sucks for Lupul, he was having a great season. Sounds like it's not too severe though, hopefully he can make a full recovery reasonably quickly, and have this be a one-time problem, not a recurring issue. I'm guessing it was just a type I separated shoulder, with only sprain type injuries, no complete tearing of ligaments?

For the team, as long as this isn't an injury with long-term complications, this could actually be somewhat of a positive. I don't think we're making the playoffs anyways, and having Lupul out for 3-4 weeks should improve our pick.

in my personal opinion - it would be better to have the leafs get some playoff experience even if they went out in 5-6 games. this team hasn't been in the dance since i was in public school. im in my last year of university now. yeah.
is it too late to tank enough to pick high enough? i dont think picking outside of the top 5 would be of any real help to this organization for the next 2-3 seasons.

"Why none at all, thanks for asking."

Best to Lupul, always liked him. It's too bad, but it wasn't a dirty hit. Krejci isn't exactly a thug.

Didn't look like a dirty hit at all, just an unfortunate outcome. On the bright side seperated shoulders usually heal up 100%.

Huge props to Lupul, 67 points in 66 games, what a ****in beast!

Don't you think, based on stats alone, Lupul would be asking for more than 6 per? I do.

This is his breakout year, I think he gets close to $6 million but not over that; I wouldn't be surprised is he gets paid like Grabo.

Would have been nice to see just how high Lupul could've gone this season. Was on pace for 83 points

Dang, extremely disappointing.. I was really wishing he'd be able to finish the season with a bang and shut up the haters.

And why do we give a damn that our next first could play on the marlies for a couple of years?

And why do we care if it takes a couple of years before that first is ready for the NHL?

We are closer to a top 1 lotto shot then a PO spot. the retool is not done, might as well grab another high draft pick as compensation for a tough season.

Lupul injured himself so he didn't have to play for Carlyle

I was posting about this yesterday about how Lupul better be injured good. Guess what. I was correct! TANK TIME!!!!!! Just need phaneuf or someone else to get injured and its all but guaranteed that we'll get a top 4 pick.

So how does this impact his trade value in the offseason if he is indeed out for all remaining games this season? He would've been a great bargaining chip for Burke with a team full of 1 cent chips

A few more injuries and we can call up Kadri/Colborne. That be a fun end to the season.
