I'd suspect the broken nose is only part of the problem, probably at least a partial re-occurrence of concussion symptoms or at the very least a 24 hour observational period just to make sure he is fine after repeated blows to the head.

Broken nose? Put on a cage and play! God am I ever sick of Armstrong.

Depends on how badly it's broken, where on the nose it's broken, etc. It's entirely possible that his face is swollen to the point where it impacts his vision - especially less than 24 hours after it broke.

Or his breathing for that matter. He can't very well play if he can't breath properly.

You know the only reason I can think to care about the Armstrong injury is that the ability to trade him in the off-season just got worse if that was even possible

Positive side of Lupul: his shoulder should heal and rehab by next season.  It's not a back injury or concussion...

A broken nose will have absolutely no impact on the team's ability to trade him.

I don't know it looks like he is still doing his china doll impression and also takes away some games where he might've salvaged his season and shown himself to be a useful player.  He was looking a bit better before getting hurt, had a scoring chance and fight.  His previous 9 games coming off his last injury he was useless and now he's out again.  Could he come back for the last dozen games and play close his salary level?  Maybe but it seems less likely now that he'll have a stretch of good play to 'showcase' himself.

Armstrong has looked soooo slow since coming back from his last injury.  I love(d) Armstrong, but you may as well dress a pilon.

A pilon!  Hey that describes how I play ice hockey.  A slow moving pilon.
I guess we're optimists because we are Maple Leaf Fans.

I would love to dog pile on this.   ;D

Can I now play some of the youtube videos of his gutless hits on unsuspecting/vulnerable opponents.  I remember when some were trying to convince me of his toughness....oh but I heard he is funny in the locker room.

I feel bad for Lupul...he looked pretty solid to finish top 10 in scoring which is quite an achievement (Mats only did this twice in his career).

Lupul knew he was really hurt after he got up from that hit, impressive that he finished the play with his stick in his left hand. He's the Leafs toughest and most physical player in their top 6 for sure, and will be missed.

jonasTSN1050: Unless Brown is a late scratch, Ashton would NOT be emergency call-up.

Are they going to IR Lupul or just keep him DTD for four weeks? That'll screw me in my hockey pool if they don't put him on IR.

Any update on Brown and Franson?
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.
