Maybe I'm not fully appreciative of hockey players and injuries that they go through, but....


How exactly does a fractured arm prevent a player from maintaining on-ice conditioning?

He can still skate, can't he? At the end of the day it's not a lower body injury at all. The only thing he likely can't do is grab a stick.

With his arm in cast & sling, he should still be able to skate. Perhaps not 100%, but I'm not sure why he's not been on the ice since his injury..

Well what if he falls on his arm? It would further delay the recovery progress and keep him out longer.
Better safe than sorry

Try swinging a broken arm back and forth while skating...

You could probably throw him on a bike everyday. Keep the lower body fresh.

I thought we went through this already.

Although, it logically appears you can skate with a broken arm, in reality the skating isn't without risk so when you fall you try and protect yourself with ... your healing arm which you then re-break and start the cycle all over again.

yup, we did go through it

a) falling on your broken arm while skating isnt good
b) he was on a bike in the meantime to keep up conditioning

Good teams make it easy on players with injuries.....Here's hoping we continue success with these key guys out of the lineup, and can usher them back in. Rather than forcing the production out of them.

The defense has allowed this with Gunnarsson and Gardiner. It is the Offense's turn to make things difficult for Randy and co.

Good sign with Lupul taking part in the optional practice. Still plenty of time left until he's 100%, but we're getting closer to getting him back in the lineup. Then figuring out just where we stick him .

Lupul can take all the time he needs. VanRiemsdyk has been playing great with Kessel and Bozak, so no need to worry there.

The team has been getting the offence we need. Whenever he is game-ready again, Lupul can be used to boost some of our slumping guys. I think he will slot in with Grabo and Kulemin. That would be a reliable and threatening line, while leaving the guys who have been producing (JVR, Kadri, Kessel) alone.

He'll replace Orr on the 3rd line if he doesnt go back to his usual #1LW role.

Is he getting more injuries like in the past? Yes. Some guys have bad luck and the latest was bad luck. But the result was still the same as past history. Long injury. Even last year, Great season but ended in shoulder separation. Why give him 5 years @ 5.5? With the recent success, ill be honest I forgot about Lupul. I like JVR and the handful he represents.

Putting Lupul on the Top line wtih Bozak and Kessel will disrupt 2 lines. As JVR will be on a new line. The chemistry built up in recent weeks or months before Lupul return is erased for one player? Im not so sure u do that right away. Maybe start him on a 3rd line.

I like Lupul but: his injury history, his age and the long recent contract was for me too much too soon. 2yrs for 8 million or 3yrs for 12 would have been safe and fair for both.
Agreed. People around here ripped the Oilers for giving an injury prone Hemsky a two year, 5 million per year contract, but who would you rather have a this point?

Hemsky, 29 years old, 573 GP 131 G 310 A 443 P $5 million 2 years
Lupul, 29 years old, 518 GP 151 G 172 A 323 P $5.25 million 5 years

Both are good players who bring some offense to their respective teams, but with both players injury history, I'm liking the shorter term contract a lot more.

I actually think that line misses Lupul's playmaking ability. Don't get me wrong, the line has done great with JVR, but Lupul is better at finding Kessel, there is a more natural flow with him imho. I eventually see JVR with Kadri and Frattin, which will be absolute gold!

I would have said the same thing, but Frattin will probably be healthy before Lupul. So Orr will already be off the third line.

But this is probably way too early to speculate, anyway, as alot can happen by then.
