Lupul - Back/Blood (Upd: Added to Active Roster)

This will start the 2010/11 Ducks Injury Thread


Lupul To Miss Training Camp
Quote:
Ducks winger Joffrey Lupul will miss the opening of training camp and likely won’t be ready for the start of the regular season due to a reoccurrence of a blood infection in his back.
Lupul said Monday he suffered the setback one month ago and stopped training because of the discomfort. Results from blood tests showed that the infection had returned, according to the team.

Lupul will continue to take antibiotics for another four weeks and cannot do any physical activity during that time. He will be re-evaluated on or around Sept.20, about two or three days after the Ducks open camp.

Lupul said that being ready for the Ducks’ season opener on Oct.8 is not a possibility. There is no timetable for his return.

“It’s really frustrating,” Lupul said. “I haven’t played hockey in a long time. I was hoping to be ready on day one of camp. But now my focus has changed. I want to get rid of this. I’m very confident I can get back playing and playing well.”

Lupul last played a game on Dec.8, 2009 and nine days later underwent surgery to repair a herniated disc in his back. He had a second procedure done 10 days later, and the infection was soon discovered.


Ducks general manager Bob Murray said through a team spokesman that Lupul’s condition and outlook had improved.

“He’s expected to make a full recovery,” Murray said. “However, he will not be able to train until he’s completed his cycle of antibiotics (on Sept.20). He will be re-evaluated at that point.”

The best case scenario for Lupul is to have no setbacks and be cleared to resume activity in late September. He said he would need ”a solid month” of training to jump into an NHL game, meaning he likely would be available to the Ducks in November at the earliest.

The Ducks, who have acknowledged interest in Paul Kariya, are not preparing for Lupul to be out for longer than that but they are aware that he probably will not play a full season. A possible fill-in at wing could be veteran Jason Blake.

Lupul’s healthy issues have meant the Ducks have had little return on Lupul’s return to the organization.

The team's been kind of trying to cover this up for awhile, haven't they?

But there were rumors anyways, so not very successfully.


I guess that means we're stuck with both Lupul and Blake for the next season. It's also probably a big part of why they were unwilling to pay Wisniewski for his otherwise quite manageable salary. Lupul will be on the IR, but it's irrelevant for a budget team since we would still have to pay his salary.

Part of me can't help but think he wasn't as focused on recovering as he should have been.

He wasn't focused enough on curing his blood infection? Should he have gone Osmosis Jones on it instead of laying around at the hospital?

There's a lot you can do to aid recovery, especially with an infection. There's also a lot you can do to slow down your recovery.

Honestly Lupul has done more negative then positive for the Ducks and he should be lucky I am not GM or I would have put him on waivers by now and he wouldn't see a Ducks jersey as long as I was around.

Also I don't know why anyone feels bad for loops. Sure he had a bad back injury but he also messed up by not taking his meds correctly and set him back months and caused infection. Also topped off by the fact he is posting on Twitter about going to the playboy mansion and out partying when he should have been resting and recovering.

Thank God you arent.

Yeah because I'm sure he never rested once at all or even slept for that matter. Love those tweets of him saying he is always sooo wasted

well that sucks...

seems like this might be career threatening.. he might make a comeback but back problems just don't go away.. wish him the best but i wouldn't put my money on seeing him back anytime soon regardless what they claim.

I don't really see the big problem you have with the guy. As for waivers, why would you do that? He wouldn't get claimed and then you're left with a player who knows he isn't wanted. What would you possibly stand to gain from that as GM?

God there are some moronic posts in this thread. Yup, Lupul is to blame for a rare blood infection in his back. He also should not be allowed out of his house or have a social life whatsoever until he is 100%.

I hate to be so angry but those being critical of Lupul for this are ****ing morons. I'd like to see how you dealt with his condition.

I don't know what you're complaining about. If anything, going out and partying would probably help kill the infection. Alcohol is a disinfectant after all.

I am surprised there are so many medical professionals in this thread. I'm also surprised how few of them understand the idea of context.

Dont be dumb and throw out stuff you know nothing about.

The only thing I am surprised is the medical staff. It sounds like this is infection #2 for him.

Unfortunately MRSA and other serious infections are becoming much more prevalent and they are getting more and more resistant to antibiotics.

My wife had an attack of MRSA above her eye that escalated in 3 days from looking like an insect bite to having her eye completely shut. Three days of a hospital stay and IV Vancomycin later and a two weeks of rest and she was better but these things happen and they are scary.

No this surgery he had makes it VERY tough to even walk right. He had a meeting with the Ducks and saying he could barely walk and things are tough for him. Then a few days later he was caught with a playboy bunny on TMZ. He was making post on twitter about going out to clubs and partying when he could barely walk. He has embarrassed the organization and in my opinion has seen his last game in a Ducks uniform. To think we are paying Lupul $4.25 million (if not more) to sit not play a game for the Ducks.
I don't get why anyone else is not pissed off about this?
With no Lupul contract we could have a top 4 Dman like Bieska and Sexton/Beleskey to replace Lupul.

I was being even less serious than normal. Which in of itself is a feat.

Jacka$$? I'm not the one pretending to be some Ducks insider as you do. I'm sure you were there when he didnt take his meds. I'm sure you were there when he wasnt doing rehab. You are the one looking stupid with all your lame a$$ "insider" information.

MRSA is a serious infection. You would need IV vancomycin to treat it, and there is no way you can be non-compliant without missing your appointments for your infusion. Hopefully, he is not an MRSA carrier b/c he going to have a tough time getting rid of this bug. Prayers to him in getting better and hopefully he could be back on the ice soon.

P.S. MRSA staph infections can be found in weight rooms.

All I know is he was training 5-6 times a week until the setback. He was working hard to get back on the ice. If I'm going to accuse him of anything, it's not going to be of screwing around and not taking things seriously.
