Lubo out for a month

CP is reporting that Ducks D-man Lubomir Visnovsky broke a finger on his right hand in the final minute of last night’s 4-3 win against Vancouver. The broken finger on Lubo’s right hand goes with the broken finger on his left hand. The one he’s been playing without complaining for two weeks.
So now we know what it takes to make Lubo sit and heal. He did okay with hand for two weeks. Not even Lubo can play no hands. Though OCR’s Mark Whicker, Shadow of the Bat and I have been questioning Lubo’s health on Twitter. The sharp-eyed Shadow Tweeted that Visnovsky wasn’t shooting last night, even on the PP. Now we know why.
Looks like Coach Carlyle will be forced to play Kurtis Foster, unless a trade is made. There’s Twitter Talk quoting unknown super duper secret sources that Bargain Bob is in talks with Bombastic Burkey about Cody Fransen.
Just where do you think a big fast D-man who won’t use his size or skate is on Randy Carlyle’s Wish List?  Fransen is a guy who Dave Poile and Barry Trotz gave up on and now he’s failed to impress Brian Burke and Ron Wilson. As if Murray and Carlyle are going to succeed where Poile, Trotz, Burke and Wilson didn’t.
My touch wood hunch is that Luca Sbisa is ready to step into a larger role.

  1. Not good news at all. Lubo’s one of, if not the best D-Man on the Ducks, hopefully he’ll be back soon.

      Hey Nik, what happens next will speak volumes about Bob Murray. Does he panic and make a trade or stick to his plan and give the young guys a chance?

    I don’t understand how a broken finger can keep a player out – except maybe the need to not move the digit while it mends.

    IMO there has been something wrong with Vish all season. He isn’t shooting from the blueline on the pp, he seldom joins the O in attacking the net. It’s my guess his shoulder has not completely healed. I think a month off will mean better results from him in the 2nd half of the season.

      Oh yeah, bb is spot on that we don’t have all the facts. I hope a month is all Lubo needs to get back to 100%. Figure 5-6 weeks before he’s going full bore though.
