Tor/TB box score...
At the bottom under TOR Scratches:
J. LUPUL, J. ROSEHILL, M. BROWN, N. KULEMIN
Lupul separated his shoulder and is expected to miss 3-4 weeks ... sounds like an IR injury and not a 'dtd we'll just scratch you'
Kulemin broke his finger in the Leafs' previous game on Tues vs. FLA ... I don't see that either as really being a 'dtd' injury.
Is there a reason they aren't putting them on the IR?
I know the Leafs have used 3 of their 4 call-ups ... is it a league rule you need X # of active people on your big team roster? If so, then obviously both can't be on the IR as we could only be able to call-up 1 person.
Really, putting them both on IR would I'm sure save the team enough $$ (they both make a decent chunk of change) that they could afford to use their last call-up and keep that player on the roster for the rest of the year as I'm sure they'd 'save' enough money w/ those 2 on the IR than that AHL call-up would be getting paid for the rest of the season.
I think Mike Brown too has an injury ... but that very well may just be a bruised hand or something of that nature as I think in the PHI game or WSH game he got into a hay-maker battle and left the game. Rosehill has been in his place ever since.
