Doesn't have to be the same injury. Point is he can't stay healthy.

Really? It would be one thing if he hurt his back or had concussion issues. It was completely random.

Let's whip a puck at your arm; I'd like to see how healthy you would end up.

I guess you have the same feelings towards Hartnell getting injured by a puck?

I wonder how often this word gets used every year on this board. HF may be the softest board in the history of the internet.

Poor guy can't catch a break...reminds me of Salo and his ability to get injured in a wide variety of ways. Any word yet on how long he will be gone?

Generally around 5-7 weeks. Keep in mind that is when I broke my forearm. Hopefully Lupes can recover quickly.

That is actually not as bad as I thought. Still blows.

Thanks

You know that black cloud hanging around the leafs his name is Dion Phaneuf. As bad as Detroit's defense is right now I would never want a tool like Phaneuf on my team.

It's because you wouldn't know talent if it slapped you in the face.

Why doesn't this injury happen all the time? I mean for how simple of an injury it seems to be and how often players shoot hard at the net you would think it would happen at least three or four times a season. I can't remember the last time I heard of this happening.

I mean players get injured by the puck all the time but I can't remember the last time I heard about someone getting a broken arm from getting hit with the puck. Other injuries as a result of getting hit with the puck absolutely but a broken arm? Seems pretty infrequent.

fluke injury or not, at some point, a guy just becomes injury prone. How many of sami salo's injuries were actually related?

The chances of it not hitting a pad (and getting up high) are pretty low. It's why some players still feel comfortable playing without a visor.

Most heavy point shooters shoot low. Except Phaneuf who has no idea where its going.

Every team has an injury proned player. Just a matter of dealing with it and continuing on with the season. All this means is he will score when he gets back and my man Matt Frattin gets a shot. Leafs are not overly hampered by this injury.

I'm not going to say whether he is injury prone or not, because frankly I don't know. I will say that I saw the game, and the injury was clearly a freak injury.


But from an analytic point of view, I will point out the correlation factor. When you look at two things and see really high correlation (ie. a hockey player (Lupul) and continual injuries), then you start to ask if there is an explanation behind the correlation. The explanation could be anything. Even though all his injuries may be freak injuries, it is possible that there is some factor that is related to both Lupul and the injuries. Hypothetically, it could be that he has a weak body, or that he has a particular wiring in his brain that causes him to put himself in danger repeatedly, or that he's using Salo's lucky skates. Or anything. Who knows what it is. But any of those factors would explain the correlation. Just an idea, anyways, tifwiw.

This seems to be the most likely explanation. Either bad luck or just injury prone. Either way it reminds me of Hemsky a bit. Lots of talent and ability meets physical challenges.

If what Dion said was true and it hit an area that wasn't protected then the same result would have happened to anyone...

Much more fiction than fact to that. Take a look at the top goal scoring defensemen and their shooting % from last season. He hits the net with the same frequency as all the other successful dmen with heavy slapshots.

Chara, Pieterangelo, J. Johnson, Byfuglien, Phaneuf - all very similar. Well... except their fanbases aren't all over them anytime they shoot.
