Might be better at this point to hold onto Lupul until the summer or even next season. Who is going to want to grab a player who, in addition to being frequently injured, is currently injured, for this years playoff run?

Exactly right.... but if Lupul can convince people he's back to 100% before the deadline.... would someone gamble?

I'm thinking the ONLY time we might be able to trade Lupul would be at a trade deadline... if not this year's, then another year's.  Take on Lupul in the off-season and you just know he's getting hurt at some point.

Can he reach 100% before March 2?  Lupul seems like a better trade-deadline trade than an off-season trade, because maaaaybe he can stay healthy for one post-season, but a full regular + post-season? Forget it!

Considering the years left on his deal anyone trading for him would have to be pretty comfortable paying him for a whole season so I don't think it would make much of a difference.

With Lupul's experience in the league on various teams and their different dynamics I wish that Lupul was captain next year and Phaneuf was traded.  I thought Lupul comments to Seigel were on the ball as he lived through it.

lupul just said the other day that he won't be back to 100% the rest of this season.  They should just have him go home and show up again next year.

He needs to be medically clear prior to the 2nd of Mar. He will be one of the many to be moved.

I like Lupul, think he is an excellent player, to bad he is made of glass, to bad there is a rebuild on and he has to be moved from a pick of prospect of some sort

Even with his injuries he's still played over 600 games in the league and has done a pretty good job scoring in the playoffs, so I think he still has a lot to offer.  The way the injuries are stacking up, I'm hopeful that a playoff team will pick him up in an attempt to make a deep run.

I did not get to watch the whole game, did Robidas return?

Thank you. I had thoughts a broken arm after he went off.

Leafs sound hopeful that Dion Phaneuf will return by Thursday. First full practice with the team today.

Stephane Robidas has been shut down for the season with a shoulder injury. Will have surgery.

Sounds like something he may have been dealing with for awhile. Again, you gotta wonder how much his performance this season has suffered because of all these injuries, but on the other hand he's also 38 years old now so injuries will probably be pretty inevitable.

I'm 36 years old and just played competitive hockey for the first time in 25 years, with a bunch of five year olds.

I'm pretty sure I now need surgery.
