Ian Laperriere (Feb. 10 update: still having problems with indoor lighting)

RT @BroadStBull: Nodl will be sent to Phantoms to get #Flyers down to 23 players.

RT @BroadStBull: Ian Laperriere goes on short-term IR. He could miss the season with post-concussion sydrome.#Flyers

(BroadStBull is Sam Carchidi)

Cap management. Obviously Nodl wasn't going to be in the opening night lineup, and LTIR can be done retroactively.

A Flyers source confirmed to me today that Ian Laperriere would not play for the remainder this season as a result of post-concussion symptoms resulting from blocking a shot with his face last April.

The worse news, according to a separate source, is that Laperriere may never play hockey professionally again.

According to the second source, the Flyers are debating whether to put Laperriere on the long-term injury list or to have him announce his retirement and simply deal with the cap hit for the next two seasons because of Laperriere's age.


Also, Andreas Nodl was sent down to the Phantoms today, but will be recalled tomorrow to play against the Penguins. The move was purely for financial purposes.
