Tell the truth, did you laugh when you read that? I sure as hell did. Please show me a team in any sport that has had as many of those than the flyers over the last few years? Hip injuries in general!

so if he, leighton and lappy all wind up on LTIR or buried in the minors (salary), how much money do the flyers have to round things out at the deadline???

oh lawdy this is to much, it's like the hockey gods are trying to right all of Holmgren's wrongs. Look out Jody Shelley, they're coming for you

...as for Walker's injury, I laughed when I read the news. Shelley has got to be next. Watch out, Jodes.

Hartnell (4.20) - Briere (6.50) - Leino (0.80)
Carcillo (1.08) - Richards (5.75) - Carter (5.00)
vanRiemsdyk (0.88) - Giroux (0.82) - Zherdev (2.00)
Powe (0.73) - Betts (0.70) - Shelley (1.10)
Nodl (0.85)

Pronger (4.92) - Carle (3.44)
Timonen (6.33) - Coburn (3.20)
Meszaros (4.00) - O'Donnell (1.30)
Bartulis (0.60)

Bobrovsky (0.90)
Boucher (0.93)

TOTAL: 56.03
CAP: 59.40
SPACE: 03.37 + the salary of the player replaced by bringing in a player.

Let's say you replace Nodl's salary in the lineup. Then we have 4.22m cap space to spend in theory.

That's also assuming that:

Leighton (1.55)
Laperriere (1.16)
Walker (1.70)
--------------
TOTAL: 4.41

Do not count against the cap hit for whatever reason be it LTIR or something else.

Players on LTIR prevent us from saving up cap space for the deadline

!= is "not equal to" in all(?) the languages I coded in, thus why I use it for "is not".
A few languages use "<>" for it, but yeah, != is standard when referencing 'not equal to'.

Which is why they aren't on LTIR yet. . . so once they go on it, we can spend up to that amount.

they assume he'll be back at some point, and when he is, we will shed salary anyway (Bob to AHL or Boucher on the road), Lappy and Walker more likely than not will not be back, so it makes sense to just wait until we make a move for a FA or a trade or something. At least we'll be able to bring in a few mil.

Can somebody please compile a list of Flyers who have experienced torn labrums in particular. This is too excessive IMO and doesn't seem like a coincidence at all....

I don't care about the whole you have to shut up with the conspiracy suggestions with McCrossin b/c it's just ridiculous not to question how these players train and the impact on their bodies. I know a couple of years or so ago somebody in the mainstream press ,don't remember who, wrote an article about McCrossin and I recall Gagne and Briere saying it was absurd to question McCrossin and his methods and maybe it is but I'm just not so sure anymore. I remember McCrossin trying to defend himself in that same article but also saying if he was responsible he would have to accept the consequences. Lemelin got too comfortable with the Flyers for over a decade and McCrossin is in the same boat IMO...

On top of that... he did it in a fight.

i think this injury might actually give walker a better shot to stay on the roster, which im in favior of because i find the kind of hockey he plays to be entertaining.

You also forgot one important asepct in wrestling as it relates to hockey. You need a vililan and bad guy who everyone boos. The flyers play that role to a tee.

Hence why we lose to them 4 times out of 5. It's clearly staged.

We only win one once in a while, just enough for them to continue hating us.

Oh, you're definitely right.

You know what? I bet that the league gave Emery that bone disease last year. Those damn ******** are out to get us.
