    Injury Update?

    Hey guys, now that we have hockey starting soon I was curious as to who may not be ready to play when the season starts.

    I know Giroux, Briere, Gustafsson, and M.A.B. were all nicked up but will they be ready to go?

    Meszaros had that surgery a while ago...is he ready for action?

    Any updates would be appreciated!

    Everyone seems good to go right now. Mez probably isn't ready right off the bat, but I wouldn't be shocked if by February he's back on the roster.

    There's no "I" in "win"

    That's great news. IMO we really need Mez back as our Defense is looking like our weakness.

    Without Mez what are the pairings?

    Schenn - Coburn
    Grossmann - Timonen
    Gervais - Syvret/Manning/M.A.B./Gus?

    Ugh...

    Insane we're gonna get a season, my first thought was, oh damn we might not see much time without Mez. I remember Homer saying after the surgey he expected him back by December....

    I'd keep Coburn and Grossmann together, thats a great old school style pairing. And I'd put Schenn with Timonen until Mez returns. Let Schenn just do the dirty work and let Timonen do the skating, should be a good way to get Schenn started on this team

    Gross - Cob
    Schenn - Timm
    Gervais/Manning - Gus (<--- dont know much about Gervias, but im not too thrilled about him. I'll probably like Gus and Manning a lot more)

    I thought I remember Homer saying he could be ready if the lockout ended in January. Even if he does end up missing time, it should be a couple of week, which isn't horrible.

    really disagree. Defense will be decent, but with all the defensive forwards on this team, they'll be fine.

    The day Matt Walker is a top 6 guy on this team, than yes the defense will be terrible.

    i agree

    grossman/coburn are capable of shutting down any top fwd line in the league.

    it's if we can stay healthy and schenn can pick up his game

    grossman/coburn
    meszaros/schenn
    timonen/gusto (or whoever wins out that 6 spot)

    not a bad top 6

    i thought gus could take over timonen's role this season if he had to so id go

    grossmann/coburn
    schenn/timonen
    gus/manning

    was impressed by manning when he was called up last year.

    timonen and gus on powerplay units with voracek and read on points. they played b. schenn on the point some last year to i think

    Homer made the statement today that Mez has been cleared by Doctors for full contact!

    Good news to hear that 12 days before the season even starts.

    I'm 99.9% sure he's done

    Everyone feel free to speculate the Flyers will try to sham the NHL into thinking he's roster spot worthy, and will just be "healthy"-scratched all season, and then amnesty over the summer

    Yah prongs is done....moral / coaching support he's ltir and hasn't even put on skates...

    I hear Danny boy could be injured..

    Heard Gus is still gimpy but he also hasn't been very productive this year. Manning has looked horrible so far this year and someone getting a lot of hype who has looked good is my boys Oliver Lauridsen and even Blake Kessel has been playing GREAT. I'm really excited about Blake he's been playing better then Gus MAB and Manning so far
