Cory Murphy's season likely over

http://blogs.tampabay.com/lightning/...kely-over.html

Quote:
As if the Lightning's battered defense needs more bad news, Cory Murphy is expected to be sidelined three to four weeks with a broken right foot, the team said. Given where we're at in the season, Murphy may not play again.

before the game yesterday
Quote:
Tocchet also praised defenseman Cory Murphy, and though he admitted it was an "unfair comparison," compared him to Anaheim's Scott Neidermayer. "He's done an outstanding job for us the past five or six games," Tocchet said. "He's not just at the point. He's all over the map. It makes it a headache (for the opposition) because they don't know where he is."
get better soon Cory Murphy

Even though I'm technically a forward, I'm eligible to play at defenseman. But not until next week because I'm injured...

Hmmmm... I wonder what Cory's secret motive is behind this? I mean, we all know he could just will his foot to be healed and that would be that. He must have some secret plan.

Maybe he broke his own foot to make Vinny look good? Like Vinny's slapshots are so fierce they can break a man's foot through his skate.

NNNNNOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cory Murphy's one weakness! Turns out he's invincible, except where his mom held him when he was dipped in the river Styx.

On the bright side, he gets to spend more time with his bay-bay.

He's just like Achilles. Invulnerable everywhere except for a small part of his foot. The only difference is Murphy won't die from this.

Murphy isn't really injured, hes just being nice and letting some other guys get icetime, as everyone knows Murphy's spot on the roster next season goes without saying.

I'm calling it now. 8:10pm on the east coast. If someone is called up not named Mike Lundin, he has already played his last game in a Lightning sweater.

I'm thinking that this is the make or break time for management to decide Lundin's future in Tampa.

He hasn't been recalled partly because of the probability they would need him to clear waivers again. There are 12 games left in the season. He'd need to be on the team for 10 of them before he'd need to clear again. Two game difference, big whoop.

The 30 days issue is also non existent because there's less than that left in the Lightning season. Today, March 18-April 11.

If the Lightning really see him as a player for them next year, I'd believe they recall him now (tomorrow really) to get him NHL minutes and on the team practice regimen.

Edit: (Unless he qualifies for re-call waivers, then I retract this statement)

They paid him some kind of bonus earlier in the year, so he qualifies for re-entry waivers. That is why we havent seen him.

It blows, they should have a rule for after the trade deadline you dont have to clear waviers to get called up.

if the Lightning recall Lundin right now he has to pass through re-entry waivers first and they arent going to lose him like that.

Too bad for Murph. The lightning PP was becoming a well oiled machine in the past two months with him running it. As a B's fan, I hope you're not banking on Lashoff sliding into that role with the same effectiveness.

We've been banking on losing since Melrose was named head coach.
