i hope he gets to the team soon so he can get that period of being slow out quickly. Hopefully he recovers fully and healthy as soon as possible for his sake and the team's sake.

JVR may be doing well on the first line but Kessel isn't getting the same room and opportunity he got with Lupul. JVR does a great job making his own opportunities and will do so on the second line as well. Lupul will be back to the first line because of the Kessel chemistry.

Joffrey Lupul says his broken arm is better but doesn't know when he can play again. Would say he's at least 2 wks away by the look of it.

I personally did not find it the same activity (skating vs. biking). Missing skating for few weeks while biking tens of kilometers per day and back on the ice - still feel pinch after one hour skate.

Will be interesting to see how the lines work out when Lupul is back. He should be ready to catch up for all the time he's missed and being out let the team bring up Frattin which should make our offense more effective.

Either way I'd leave Grabo's line mostly untouched, it does its shutdown job just fine the way it is. Just throw JVR or Lupul onto the Kadri-Frattin line and see how that works.

Why not wait a few months before Signing him and have a look at JVR and his potential? For me its a mistake. Is it me or did most of the die hard "forget" about Lupul with JVR doing wat he is doing and all the chemistry on the top 3 lines.
Exactly.

I really liked Nonis' moves w/ Lombardi, Connolly, etc., but as soon as I saw "Lupul re-signed" on tsn that day I instantly knew it was a bonehead decision.

What the hell are you guys talking about?

If JVR is doing well, that means that Lupul is no good anymore? WTF
It's never a bad thing to have two good players instead of one.

I don't get it either.

We should have waited to re-sign Lupul, so we could see how JVR did first? We can't have two nice things?

Joffrey Lupul taking part in his first full practice with the team it appears. Let's see how long he stays out.

Looks like Lupul has already come off, so looks like he's still a long way from a return.

ANND he's gone

You've almost gave me a heart attack....

I hope they won't rush him too quick.

Is that a conditioning issue? Or his hand still does not feel anywhere close to 100%?

Not sure, prolly conditioning if it was my guess.

Terry Koshan ‏@koshtorontosun
March 6 is six weeks since injury for Lupul. Original prognosis was 6-8 weeks, so he is not far from returning to full practice. #Leafs

Ugh, that re-signing was far too early.

Wonder how much longer he'll be out. We need him back in the lineup.

Sat, 23 Mar vs. Bruins
Mon, 25 Mar vs. Bruins
Tue, 26 Mar vs. Panthers

Some people are acting as if having a top 6 forward return is a bad thing.

You know what's a good thing? Having a ton of highly skilled forwards in your top 6!? Look at Chicago.

Who cares how well JvR has played? Lupul coming back doesn't hurt JvR, so long as he maintains production on that first line.

To be honest, when Lupul comes back, I'd ease him into the lineup, all with the intention of getting Lupul back onto the Kessel line - fact is, for as good as JvR has been, he hasn't helped get Kessel going; that's something that I think Lupul will do

Carlyle says Lupul had a scan on his arm, the bone is healing. But not at the point where he's able to practice w/ team.

It was totally his fault too, the idiot. What the hell was he trying to do by standing in front of the net, anyway?
