I'm gonna have to say: what the **** are these guys doing that their hips and groins are messed up all the time? Is it possible that they are getting too much puck bunny ass?

The good news is that Simon Gagne didn’t have a labrum tear or anything else major in his right hip.

The bad news is that the Flyers’ left wing still underwent surgery Thursday in Nashville to remove a bone spur and adhesions in that area.

The surgery was performed by Thomas Byrd. Gagne will begin rehab this weekend and is expected to be fully recovered in 4-6 weeks, according to general manager Paul Holmgren.

“I feel pretty good,” Gagne said. “I had surgery this morning and right now I am on my way back from Nashville to Philly.”

Gagne said the bone spur did not affect him during the playoffs, but it did at other times.


“We were able to treat it with some pain relief medicine before games to take the edge off the pain,” he said. “But during the regular season there were some up and downs but I was still able to play. I didn’t have to stop because of the pain. The pain was there once in a while but it was something that I was okay to play with.”

bionic frenchman, lol.

Gagne had a pretty damn good year, especially considering the injury he was coming back from. 74 points in 79 games is nothing to sneeze at.

My next guess is Timonen will sneeze and need shoulder surgery.

Not surprised. I'm never surprised anymore when we have off season surgery. It was only a matter of time until Gags went under the knife for a lower body injury.

Honestly if anyone has any kind of injury I would rather them get the surgery now since they have a long summer to recover. I can never understand when a guy misses some time during a season due to injury and then comes into the next season and misses time early in the season because of that same injury. If they would have just got it taken care of they could recover fully before the season. The recover is so good these days that for a lot of things it almost seems better to get it fixed than just just hope some rest will fix things.

The rest...

Quote:
Gagne’s wife, Karine, delivered a baby boy, Matthew, on May 23.

“It feels like a dream,” Gagne said. “I don’t know if I really realize it yet. I got home with my wife and the baby on Tuesday morning. So I got to spend like one day with them at the house.”

“This is where you start to realize that you are going to have a family, and you are going to be a father when the baby comes back to the house. On Wednesday, I had to leave and come to Nashville and see the doctor and I had the surgery this morning. I am sure the next couple of days are going to be very fun to get better, start to heal the hip with my baby, Matthew, and my wife. It is definitely one of the greatest moments in my life.”
YAY! Daddy Gagne!

In order to be reminded of the lineup of injuries...

Quote:
Byrd saw goalie Antero Niittymaki, defenseman Randy Jones, forward Darroll Powe and Gagne. He operated on both Jones and Gagne and recommended rest and rehab for Powe and Niittymaki.

Simon Gagne has had a very busy week.

Just a day after becoming a father, the Flyers' left winger traveled to Nashville to have a bone spur and adhesions removed from his right hip. And it seems that the biggest adjustment in his life has nothing to do with recovery and rehab.

Gagne's wife, Karine, delivered a baby boy, Matthew, on Tuesday. He was home for a day, Wednesday, and then flew down to Tennessee have his hip repaired. And last night he was on his way back home to begin the job of being a dad.

"It feels like a dream," Gagne said. "I don't know if I really realize it yet. I got home with my wife and the baby on Tuesday morning. So I got to spend like 1 day with them at the house.

"This is where you start to realize that you are going to have a family, and you are going to be a father when the baby comes back to the house."

As far as his surgery, Gagne has been experiencing pain throughout the season, but he managed to keep playing. He said he was not hindered during the playoffs, but needed to have injections to relieve the pain before games.
