On the event that Stamkos is unavailable for the Olympics, who do you think gets the call to replace him?


Not even Canada can replace a guy like him but my guess would be Lupul.

Here's the gif of the collision:

Vid is up at nhl.com. He looked MISERABLE on the ice. Hope his season isn't over...


I honestly cannot describe the pain I felt by watching that. I thought well it's just a gif. Not the whole video...obviously it ended up being worse.

I feel bad for Stamkos and Tampa, but am I the only one thinking to himself, "f*ck team Canada"?


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

Any MMA fans here? All I could think of is the Corey Hill leg break...thank god Stammer was socked and taped up so we didn't have to see it. *shivers*

Most likely a compound fracture, he's done for the season. Unfortunate and untimely.

Now perhaps Steve Yzerman can find the time to watch the Winter Classic from the recovery room...

Hits me right in the fantasy team.. the rest of "Little Honey tootoo" needs to step up :P


In all seriousness tho, hoping for a quick recovery for anyone who goes thru that kind of crash. Poor guy, hope he's okay long term.

I remember watching that fight. I had to turn away from the TV, not a fan of the "able to see leg bones" injuries. Reminds me a bit when Mir snapped Big Nog's arm with a brutal armbar.

Or that awful college basketball break last season..? That one was tough to see to say the least

I'm sure Stevie can relate from sliding into the post and getting an injury.  At least for Stamkos the net came off its moorings.  Hopefully his injury will heal a lot better than Yzerman's did.

He had successful surgery today to have a metal rod inserted.  

 

According to Bob Mckenzie he is not ruled out of the Olympics as 3 months is the optimistic recovery time and Olympic hockey doesn't start for over 90 days.

 

It's all going to depend on how the recovery goes and whether Yzerman/Stamkos want to risk his health as well as Tampa's chances post-Olympics.

That was another nasty one. I'm bummed that the guys I grew up watching are well past their hayday now, I really can't get into the new crop of fighters and don't really watch a lot of fights anymore as a result.

But on topic, it's injuries like this that make me glad hockey players are in full unis!

I have seen a lot of gruesome things being an EMT, but breaks just get to me. I saw this and just immediately felt bad. The look on his face just said it all.

Not a hockey player, but I was a big fan of Joe Theismann.  I remember that break like it was yesterday.  Hopefully Stamkos can recover and go on to the career he deserves.

From NHL:

 

 

Steven Stamkos walked into the media room in the Tampa Bay Times Forum on Monday, and he did it without crutches, without a cast or a walking boot, and with only a barely perceptible limp.

Steven Stamkos finally has a firm date in mind to play: Saturday at home against the Red Wings.
