Greene's injury



That's, uh... that's a tough one.

It looks like they're calling this a broken ankle, which is bad news for the Oilers.

A few questions:
1) Do the Oilers lead the NHL in man-games lost to injury this year? I have to think Moreau and Pisani alone clinch this (26 total), but it's hard to say.
2) Did the Oilers lead the NHL in man-games lost to injury last year? Again, Moreau and Tjarnqvist have to make this close, plus having the entire D corps in sickbay for the last 15-20.
3) What is the typical figure for man-games lost per year, as an average?

I'm not looking for exact numbers, so much as a place where I can figure this out for myself with relative ease, though if someone has that stuff on hand, I won't say no.

I don't have any numbers on this, Doogie, but I'll throw the Ducks up there as well.

By my count, the Ducks are at 36--Schneider (13), Giguere (6), Bertuzzi (6), Pahlsson (5), Rob Niedermayer (3), Getzlaf (2), and Moen (1).

Speaking of the ducks, what happened to Niedermayer and Selanne? Their retire/dont retire soap opera is idiotic

Crap, I mean 38. I forgot that Todd Marchant missed a pair of games too.

Here's my count, and I'm sure I missed some:

Moreau (13)
Pisani (13)
Souray (7)
Pitkanen (5)

That's 36, 44 if you count Mathieu Roy, who wouldn't be playing if it weren't for the other injuries.

I count 39 on the Leafs:
Wellwood (13)
Colaiacovo (13)
Ponikarovsky (3)
Tucker (4)
McCabe (3)
Devereaux (3)

I forgot about the Ducks and the Leafs; regardless of how you count things, though, it's pretty ugly early this year. I mean, cosmic karma for trying to rise above our station in '06 is one thing, but come on. Enough.
