01:12 PM ET 01.24 | Toronto Maple Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul is projected to miss six weeks due to a broken forearm suffered during the team's 4-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday night. Lupul sustained the injury during the second period when he was hit in the arm with a point shot from Toronto captain Dion Phaneuf. Lupul immediately left the ice surface, headed to the team's dressing room and did not return to the game. With Lupul out for an extended period of time, the Maple Leafs have recalled forward Matt Fratin from their American Hockey League affiliate, the Toronto Marlies. As of Thursday morning, head coach Randy Carlyle had not announced how he plans to construct his forward lines.

Wouldnt a hockey mecca be a place where every single player would love to play ?? That rules TO out.

I really don't feel like Leafs bashing, but they hand out inflated contracts and there is no pressure to win. Some players like that combination.
I see a baseball team lose every year with no pressure to win, I offer condolences.
Well, I don't really see, I hear about them.

I got dragged to two pirate games last year and in both games they couldn't even get guys on base. I'll say this, at least the Leafs WANT to or like the idea of WINNING.

This was flukey. He woulda gotten the money elsewhere, and I do like his play when healthy. He'll miss some games, but I think overall it's worth the money.More worth it than Grabovski, that's for sure.

I agree my fellow fanatic! I was a Lupul disliker until he proved he has it. This team is nothing compared to others on paper, but we still have won 2 of the first three games with 2 really unproven net minders, and a plethora of D-men, and a couple of reasonable names up front. Lupul being one of them. Compare that to the Rangers??? Not bad for what Ferggie left us with, and no I don't blame Burke. I thought that was a silly move based more on personality rather than a big picture. Ferggie left a mess, and we are still trying to fix it. Oh and yes I know how many seasons it has been, just my opinion on the guy.

They have to or else they are subjected to the complete library of Anthony Robbins motivational seminars during practice.
