Don Cherry has advice for Joffrey Lupul after Leafs 'cheat' comment

  Don Cherry has advice for Joffrey Lupul after Leafs 'cheat' comment Coach's Corner commentator Don Cherry thinks it would be best if Toronto Maple Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul "lay on the California beach" and "enjoy the dough."The Coach's Corner commentator was referencing the headlines Lupul made earlier in the week when he claimed that he was fit to play despite failing his physical on the first day of training camp.

The NHL is reportedly seeking a second opinion on Joffrey Lupul ’s health and it was revealed the same will be done with Marian Hossa. So, what happens if the Maple Leafs and Blackhawks aren’t allowed to place the wingers on long - term injured reserve ?

The Maple Leafs have used Long Term Injured Reserve to their advantage the past two seasons and will again this year, with some people thinking For now, the process is reasonably simple: A doctor will look at Lupul ’s file — he may not need to see Lupul personally — and decide if Lupul is in fact

Joffrey Lupul remains in a kind of injury limbo, yet he still continues to have an impact on the Leafs roster.

According to TSN, Lupul was to undergo a test Monday to determine if his injuries were severe enough to warrant placing him on long-term injured reserve for the upcoming season. That decision was to come Tuesday, and it could affect the Leafs’ final cuts.

The club, which narrowed its training camp roster to 26 players Monday, must have its final 23-man roster submitted to the NHL by 5 p.m. Tuesday. That roster will open the season Wednesday in Winnipeg.

Leafs’ salary cap could hinge on exam of Joffrey Lupul

The problem for the Leafs is Lupul’s $5.25-million cap hit, which will count against the cap for this season, depending on the results of his test.

“I know as much as you do,” Leafs GM Lou Lamoriello said Monday. “His status is the same unless something different develops.”

Lamoriello must make up to three more cuts to get the Leafs roster down to the season opening limit of 23.

Lupul’s remaining salary becomes a factor in those decisions, since the Leafs have no room under this season’s $75-million salary cap. Hiding it under the LTIR list would obviously benefit Lamoriello and the directions he may want to take with his remaining roster moves.

The NHL is overseeing the Lupul test, and asked him recently to undergo an independent medical examination. That came on the heels of a failed physical at the outset of Leafs training camp.

Leafs’ salary cap could hinge on exam of Joffrey Lupul

  Leafs’ salary cap could hinge on exam of Joffrey Lupul At some point, likely this week but certainly before the NHL season begins Oct. 4, an independent doctor is going to look into the health of Joffrey Lupul and determine his fate, and by extension, the fate of the Maple Leafs’ salary cap. The Maple Leafs have used Long Term Injured Reserve to their advantage the past two seasons and will again this year, with some people thinking Leafs general manager Lou Lamoriello has set the template for teams wanting to get out from under unwanted contracts.Indeed, look no further than Marian Hossa and the Chicago Blackhawks.

Lupul, however, brought the failed medical into controversy when he posted comments on his Instagram account (he quickly removed them, and apologized for his actions).

If the Leafs are unable to file his salary under the LTIR, it could have an effect on the finals cuts.

At the moment, the Leafs opted to send several talented youngsters — Kasperi Kapanen, Nikita Soshnikov, Travis Dermott, and Miro Aaltonen — to the Marlies, largely because they do not have to be placed on waivers to be sent to the AHL.

Veterans like Eric Fehr and Dominic Moore were kept among the group of 14 forwards who will start the season. Those two players would have to be exposed to waivers if a decision was made to send them to the Marlies.

Ultimately, the Leafs may have to do some fancy cap balancing Tuesday, and it could involve those players and others, just to balance out their cap equation.
