^ It's not atypical of the competitive instinct of an athlete to paint a rosier picture. Whether the Flyers are erring on the side of caution in this instance by keeping him sidelined longer than needed is possible. The text written by Tim P. could support that but the part about accelerating should be emphasized.
Jaromir Jagr skated by himself at the morning skate on Thursday and didn’t rule out the possibility of returning to the lineup sooner than a week to 10 days.
“I was surprised to hear that, because I didn’t feel that way,” Jagr said of the timeline, adding he was actually speared in the groin area against Pittsburgh last week, not the calf.
Jagr said this injury is different from the groin pull he suffered in November. He said it’s not as bad, yet at the same time, he can’t accelerate fully to open up his stride without pain.
“Only way I feel pain is when I push my leg all the way,” he said. “That was in the game. Today, I felt fine but it’s only practice and I don’t [extend] … I have at least two more practice days and it heals quick.”
