Brooks Orpik injury news

Postby FreeCandy44 on Wed Apr 24, 2013 10:34 pm

Lower body has been thrown around and Disco was very dismissive about it. Im wondering and hoping he is available for Round 1 come next week. So any news? updates? woo?

Fitting that once Martin starts to get healthy his defence partner goes down. Based on what has been said by Bylsma this sounds just precautionary.

I never saw anything of a fall, hit or blocked shot where he got clearly hurt, I'm guessing (GUESSING) that he tweaked something.

I'm thinking something extremely minor and they are holding him out until the playoffs to get him some rest.

Lower body... I thought he took a shot when he was partially turned, looked like he took it right on the backside. I guess you can call him a candy ***

He is getting up there...especially for his style of play, but with #1 locked up and the last games really meaningless - he is exactly the style of player you let rest up for a couple of games. We are going to need him to (points up in the sky as if Tangradi were dead) #BangBodies.

Joe Vitale and Brooks did not make the scenic trip to NJ.
Got to have Brooks ready for the play-offs.

AS long as TK is breathing and Kris Letang is playing; it's covered. 8-)

I'd say the most important news here is that Mark Eaton is the better player right now.
