Does anyone know of a place that tracks man games lost to injury?

Or perhaps a nerd (and I use the term nerd with utmost respect as nerds make the world run!) here tracks that?

Awesome link. I thought we would be higher. A lot of D-men though and not just this year.
Still, the loss of our two main centers has been catastrophic and it has made it almost impossible for us to stay competitive
through 60 minutes.

There's an even better site but it requires a subscription to view current articles and metrics.

It values not only man games lost but the value of the player lost to the team and charts everything.

www.mangameslost.com

You used to be able to look at old articles but I can't even seem to do that anymore.

I'm posting this cause he's one of Bubbles favourite Defenceman in the game - Seabrook, a healthy scratch for tonight's game. I gather Duncan Keith can no longer carry this guy. Such an overrated player

The guy has played a lot of games, and has three cup rings. Looks like time is catching up to him quickly, but I don't imagine anyone lining up to take him off Chicago's hands. 6 years left at $6.875. Yikes.

Seabrook is only 32, he's not Sedin old, but I'm not surprised he's sucking large. A very overrated player given a ridiculous contract. I remember Bubbles saying he wouldn't mind trading for Seabrook not too long ago.

I would trade Eriksson for virtually ANYone or ANYthing.

Swap a shitty contract sure - just so long as I don't have to watch Eriksson any more. The only places I want to see LE is in the press box or on a flight out of YVR.

Correct, he's not Sedin old, but he's played nearly as much. Over 1,000 NHL games and over 24,600 minutes (Sedins are between 23,500-24,600 minutes played).

Remember when he signed the extension? Blackhawks were coming off a SC win and he put up 39 points in year 1 of the deal. While there's no doubt they anticipated his decline over the course of the deal, I don't think they expected Seabrook to go from top-pairing, top-4 to healthy scratch this quickly.

I'm not sure I would swap it for Seabrook. At this point they are both terrible deals. The depressing thing is these were supposed to be the "good" years of the LE deal. Hopefully he can rejuvenate himself, because the "bad" years towards the end of his deal could be real ugly...

I don't know, this is bad. If he did waive, where, I wonder, would he want to come?
Scares the crap outta me.
I hate the Eriksson contract as much as anyone but in all honesty, at this point, I think Edler is a better player than Seabrook.

Listen if Loui Eriksson was Lou Erixon from Port Coquitlam, Bubles would be justifying his contract. Andrew Ladd is from PoCo, he can do no wrong in Bubles eyes, his contract is worst than Loui's

I don't like to say "I told you so"... but the Seabrook contract was beyond grotesque from the moment it was signed.

You loved it, I despised it:

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=9706&p=240117&hilit ... ok#p240117

Eventually you realized I was right, here you are comparing Eriksson's/Seabrook's contracts 8 months ago:

Seabrook is signed till he's 39. No thanks, it's two years too long. At least Erikssons contract is structured so that he can beat it in 3-4 years. It's a bad contract but Seabrook's deal is far more damaging long term.
And now you're wrong about Sutter's contract.

It's difficult to get an impending-UFA elite defensive centre to sign up for a rebuild.

Lord Benning did very well here.
