Thank god its not serious (knock on wood). I think we will need him in the playoffs to get that 3rd line and our PP started. Plus I really want Briere and Giroux to get some more time together...I think it will be good for Giroux's development.
Nodl was promoted (now listed on the Flyers' official roster).
Per Tim P., expected line changes:
Andreas Nodl with Riley Cote and Darroll Powe.
Claude Giroux will center Dan Carcillo and Arron Asham.
Biron to start.
im ok with that - at least Giroux doesn't have to play with clear-cut 4th liners. Both his wingers do have some skill and *******s like Talbot won't take runs without fear of a punch in the throat. I'd still like to see Cote scratched in favor of some Phantom - why not Maroon? is he clearly not ready? Can't Stevens tell him just to stay back and when in doubt to chip it out or his ass goes back between periods?
Those lines will hopefully workout well. Carcillo/Giroux/Asham looked good in spurts yesterday.
I was thinking the same thing - always liked Asham ever since he pounded on Richards his first couple years but never acted like a dick, never punched him when he was down and was always like "good fight rookie you're lucky I didn't kill you...."
