Tim P.'s column on CSN:
Lilja told the paper he might not be able to return until December – four months.
Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren doesn’t agree.
“He did have surgery [and] should be back late October or early November,” Holmgren texted CSNPhilly.com on Sunday afternoon.
Last week, the Flyers announced that Andrej Meszaros would be out indefinitely following a tear to his right Achilles tendon. Meszaros likely will miss most, if not all, of the regular season.
Sources said then that Meszaros’ realistic goal was to be healthy for the playoffs.
Given the CBA negotiations, the NHL is facing a lockout. No one knows whether there will be a season.
The only silver lining for Holmgren is that a lockout gains the Flyers some recovery time.
Right now, the defense looks like this _ our pairings and not necessarily coach Peter Laviolette’s: Kimmo Timonen-Braydon Coburn; Nick Grossmann-Erik Gustafsson; Luke Schenn-Marc-Andre Bourdon; 7th: Bruno Gervais; 8th: Brandon Manning.
Injured: Meszaros, Lilja and Chris Pronger
