Kimmo Timonen (March 11, 2014 article in post #1)
 
March 11, 2014:

Quote:

Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen is undecided about whether this will be the final season of his stellar 15-year NHL career.
But he admitted if the Flyers overcame the odds and won the Stanley Cup, it would be “the perfect way to leave the game.”

His decision “comes to the summertime for me,” he said after Tuesday’s morning skate at the Wells Fargo Center, where the Flyers were preparing to face the New Jersey Devils. “I want to see how we do in the last 18 games. I want to feel the playoff atmosphere. That’s a goal where I want to be, and hopefully we get there with this team. Because once you get in the playoffs, you don’t know what’s going to happen. You have as good as chance as anybody once you get in.”

There is it. Rest Kimmo as much as possible for next year.

Damn it kimmo! Why couldn't this happen like 3 weeks ago!?

BernieParent 04-23-2013 11:56 AM

Well, shut my mouth. Please ignore my post in the GDT.

It probably did, remember him walking in that boot thing after a game a few weeks ago

SolidSnakeUS 04-23-2013 12:00 PM

Any idea how long he's had the fracture?

ayshplaysh 04-23-2013 12:02 PM

We won't even need to try to lose out for the rest of the season!

Curufinwe 04-23-2013 12:03 PM

If L Schenn didn't wear a visor every one of the Flyers' top 6 defenseman would have suffered a bad injury this season.

GoneFullHextall 04-23-2013 12:03 PM

takes quite a bit to get Timonen out of the lineup.

MRxBLACK 04-23-2013 12:06 PM

Imagine if we were going into game 46 of an 82 game season.

Beef Invictus 04-23-2013 12:07 PM

He's probably had this for a while, but there's no point playing him on that foot anymore. What was it, like 3 weeks ago that he took that shot off the foot?

orange is better 04-23-2013 12:08 PM

So lets see...

Gustafsson-Schenn
Lauridsen-Gervais
Manning-Foster

That.
Is.
Fantastic.

BernieParent 04-23-2013 12:09 PM

Timonen foot fracture. Earthquakes in China and Iran.

Coincidence?

If that doesn't lead to going 0-3 these final 3 games, I don't know what will!

Probably the guy is one tough SOB.

Well it matters to us going 0-3!

But really I was merely pointing out the comical nature of our defense.

Lilja plays with a pool cue on golf spikes? Bryzgalov in street-hockey gear and playing wrong-hand trapper? The forwards all agree to a minimum of four offensive-zone passes before a shot on net?

What am I saying on the last one? I think that's been an unofficial rule all season!

bp spec 04-23-2013 12:20 PM

Wouldn't surprise me if he played trough it for a long time. Kimmo is a serious warrior.

I think they should make it team policy that all players must shotgun a beer between shifts. It's not like they could make the tank any more obvious anyways.

Isn't Gervais still hurt? I thought that was why they brought up Lilja.

RJ8812 04-23-2013 12:29 PM

Gervais is done for the season

TheKingPin 04-23-2013 12:45 PM

Absolutely incredible season. Glad the full tank is on finally. I bet edm doing what they do best motivated the flyers to finally rest timo
