why can't this happen to Sean Avery?

Maple Leafs captain Mats Sundin will be out indefinitely with a fractured orbital bone.

The injury was sustained when he took a puck to the eye in Wednesday night's opener against Ottawa. This type of injury is very scary, as vision loss is always a concern. Fortunately, there was no damage to the eyeball and no reported loss of vision.

Even though he's a Leaf, it's really hard to find anything bad to say about Sundin. He's just a great player.

The injury may require surgery, and he is expected to miss at least four to six weeks.

I wouldn't wish injury on anyone other than Todd Bertuzzi, but I wouldn't be sad at all, or the least bit concerned if this kind of thing happened to Sean Avery. After running his mouth about players who wear visors, it would be fitting for him to suffer a similar fate. A visor probably would have prevented this injury.

Don't worry, karma will catch up with that biatch one of these days!

sad thing is, Sundin used to wear a visor.

Saw my first game in HD tonight.... I can't believe the difference! It was incredable!
