Philly Injury Update

On Sunday I spent the day at the Flyers Wives Fight for Lives Carnival. There was a great turn out for one of the best put together events by a sports team. You could meet and greet today’s and future Flyers’ players.

At this event I was able to talk with some of the players, annoucers & radio personalities about the rash of injuries that have happen to the Flyers this year.

Here is a list of the injured Flyers;

Jerermy Roenick (broken jaw, severe concussion)- According to Jim Jackson, TV analyst, & Al Morganti, they believe that with how Roenick has been getting worse this past week that he will not be back this year. This hurts the Flyers and that they lost their grit and personality of the team. He was so sick he was unable to attend the event. They said if he heals well they don’t expect him to retire.

Keith Primeau (concussion)- He is out at least another 2 – 3 weeks with the concussion symptoms not quite gone yet. He will try to come back by the weekend if he feels better. He left the event early due to he was not feeling well.

Eric Desjardins (broken arm)- He told me he was another 3-4 weeks away from his return.He was feeling great and looking forward to returning.

Dennis Seidenberg (broken leg)- I also got a chance to speak with him. He said he would like to be back for the playoffs but it did not seem likely. His leg is still very tender to walk on.

Mattias Timmander – He said that he was ok after the hit by Ronald Petrovicky on Saturday. He sustained a nastsy cut above his right eye that needed about 10 stitches. He will be ready for Tuesday game against the Chicago.

Donald Brashear (Knee sprain)- He said he will be ready to return by maybe Tuesday, if not, definately on Thursday.

Todd Fedoruk (knee sprain)- He hopes to be back by the end of this week.

Claude Lapointe (depression)- He is feeling good and happy to be back with his teammates. Welcome back!! He is really a great guy and deserves the best.

Hopefully we won’t be adding anymore players to the list. To JR get well soon.

    Way to completely forget Robert Esche. Allthough he’s been skating he’s still not cleared.

    Why can’t Sean Burke GET HURT so Philly fans can have something to be happy about again?

    I am worried about Roenick. It really is a huge loss to lose a guy like that for the playoffs and possible for good. Get well soon JR!

    “This hurts the Flyers and that they lost their grit and personality of the team”

    Flyers still have ALOT of grit, especially when Premo, Brashear, and Fedoruk come back. Besides not to mention LeClair, Recchi, and Handzus. This team HAS grit, that isn’t the problem. As for personality, well as far as I am concerned there isn’t another JR in hockey (Though they have as much personality as any team in hockey). If hockey had a few more people with his personality I think the NHL’s ratings would go way up. I think that is one of the things this sport lacks. They need more guys like JR in there, if he retires it will be a lose for the entire NHL.

    Burke really does look like shit doesn’t he? Even if the Flyers have been playing shit defense. I would rather see them give the job to Niittymaki!

    Brashear isn’t grit, the same way domi isn’t grit. Thats goon. Grit it Owen Nolan or Gary Roberts. And did you say John Leclair and Mark Recchi have grit? who are you the ottawa senators? Toronto not only has grit, but very skillfull grit. they just got mogilny back and will be a force to be reckoned with in the playoffs, i just wish we still had McAuley.

  6. UsedandAbused says:

    And Recchi didn’t show plenty of grit against Toronto last year in the playoffs.

  7. shady_records says:

    Recchi is by far not a girtty player.

  8. flyersfan82 says:

    when you look at grit, you say nolan, shanahan, bertuzzi, tkachuk, roenick, players who arent affraid to go behind the net and get their hands dirty.

    Recchi has been playing nastier this year, but not gritty.

    LeClair just uses his size and balance to knock defenders on their ass, its fun to watch.

    Brashear is a goon, but he does it right, he doesnt hide like domi or barnaby would.

    I am ready for NIITTYMAKI HOCKEY……..Sean Burke looks no better then he did during his first tour of duty. He looks Old Slow and makes me want to puke every time I think about hockey, not to mention the rebounds he gives up, unreal……..

  10. KUBLI-KAHN says:

    Burke makes me puke

    niittymaki is a beastly mother.. and about burke’s rebounds.. holy shit, i piss myself everytime i see that puck fly off his pads.. why does he start 6 games in a row after losing 3 in a row? (not counting against atlanta, which by the way.. 4 goals agaist and a win dont go together very often)

    Wasn’t this a Flyers Injury Update?

  14. UsedandAbused says:

    “players who arent affraid to go behind the net and get their hands dirty”

    I suppose because LeClair uses his size, he can’t possible be gritty. Like Bertuzzi doesn’t use his size. I don’t know how anyone can SAY LeClair isn’t gritty(I can see an arguement for Recchi), That guy takes a beating in front of the net as well as anyone in the NHL, and he always gets his hands dirty behind the net.
