Andreas Lilja, hip surgery, "should be back late October or early November,” Holmgren
 
Quote:

Philadelphia Flyers fans, it’s pouring in terms of injuries to your blueline. With Chris Pronger sidelined indefinitely with post-concussion symptoms and Andrej Meszaros out for at least a couple of months with an Achilles tendon injury that required surgery, things looked a little shaky, and now they look shakier: according to Helsinborgs Dagblad’s Linus Ahlin, Andreas Lilja has had surgery to correct a degenerative hip injury, and he’s going to be out for four months.

Woah, is this the 3rd surgery of the off-season for the Flyers? Giroux, Meszaros and Lilja? Correct me if I'm wrong on the Giroux surgery.

Lilja told the newspaper that he had grown used to having hip pain during the season but the pain usually went away during the summer. This summer, however, the pain did not go away and actually got a little worse. A doctor diagnosed it as a degenerative hip condition and recommended the surgery.

The veteran, who is currently at his home in Sweden, plans to return to the USA to rehab under the Flyers' direction. He will remain in the US to rehab. Even if the NHL season begins on time, he will miss the first two months.He had originally intended to play for Swedish team Rögle BK in the event of an NHL lockout but that plan is now out the window.

Lilja's injury now brings the number of healthy Flyers defensemen down to seven. Barring a new acquisition, Marc-Andre Bourdon and Erik Gustafsson are now both virtual locks to make the opening night roster unless Brandon Manning beats one of them out.

He says he's had problems for a couple of years, usually the pain disappears during the summer. Didn't this year so he decided to get surgery.
Says he might've prolonged his career with five years by getting a new hip and feels it's gonna be very different to get back on the ice, to be able to skate without pain etc.

Sweet! No lilja for 4 months!

Who owns the rights to a Replacements remake featuring the Flyers' blueline?

You forgot Timonen (back) and Grossmann (knee). Not sure if Simmonds had surgery as well on his broken finger?

Hockeypete49 08-12-2012 05:55 AM

Hmmm He may be back just when the lockout is over.

MsWoof 08-12-2012 08:25 AM

I hope he recovers well but this is no big loss. If there's a lockout he'll be back for the start of it.

Erza Scarlet 08-12-2012 08:39 AM

While its not a big loss, I say the blue line is cursed yugh.

TheDrizzle81 08-12-2012 08:51 AM

World is over. Our barely ECHL level defenseman is out. :(

bp spec 08-12-2012 09:00 AM

Line them up.

CTU2fan 08-12-2012 09:27 AM

He might actually be better when he returns. I've never been a fan of Lilja but the main reason is his (lack of) mobility...if the surgery helps there we could be looking at getting an additional viable d-man back for the stretch. Ideally Lilja and Meszaros can be close to 100% in March and heading into the playoffs...and that's the key. This is a playoff team, the goal is to be close to full-strength in April.

GKJ 08-12-2012 09:35 AM

Not that people should want a lockout, but it would clearly help this team if there was one.

nevermore 08-12-2012 09:45 AM

I realize this is Lilja and not Timonen, but this is getting ridiculous. At this point the Flyers should at all times carry 12 Top 6 d-men.

SeanCWombBroom 08-12-2012 09:58 AM

Honestly, this is not a big deal.

The younger defensemen are better.

In an unrelated note, my metal kissing/biting avatar is better ;)

Who's next?

until they make a mistake then we have 6 threads saying so and so is a bust and needs to be sent back to the AHL.

DrHamburg 08-12-2012 12:32 PM

Alright guys, calm down. I am going to let you in on a secret. Lilja isnt good at all. Addition by subtraction. When you replace a bad player with an average one. its like replacing an average player with a superstar.

I trust
Kimmo-Schenn
Grossman-Coburn
Manning-Bourdon
Gervais

Over last seasons Kimmo, Carle, Coburn, Kubina, Grossman, Lilja and Mez. Although I think Mez would help this season so much.

I don't see anyone getting upset :dunno:

CS 08-12-2012 12:44 PM

Didn't I say something in the other thread?

I just have this feeling we're opening with:

Timonen - Schenn
Coburn - Grossmann
Bourdon/Manning - Gustafsson

mm6492 08-12-2012 01:19 PM

Only thing is he should've gotten it 2 months ago.

Probably, unless UFA is signed or a trade is made. That looks right.

addition by subtraction. :sarcasm:

RJ8812 08-12-2012 02:01 PM

I know a lot of people don't like Lilja, but our injuries are so LOL worthy

ninetynine* 08-12-2012 02:24 PM
