That and cuts to the fingers and such are more sensitive to breaking open again because of the movement of your hands. Hopefully it isn't that bad and he doesn't miss serious time. Although he could miss a few games.
Thats how I see it. Carcillo in the top 9 kills me.
I wouldn't be surprised to see Nodl on the 4th line and Carcillo up with Richards for a couple shifts. Play whoever is having the better game more. That is a good looking line up for sure and then come playoff time with Shelley benched we will have one of the best 4th lines in the playoffs that could match up with any line out there.
You're probably right. I don't have a big problem with that lineup. Shelley won't play much anyway - and it will be good to have him out there and keep everybody honest.
I just hope Wellwood gets a shot at the team next season. He has so much more skill than Nodl. Sure he's smaller but he plays a smart defensive game. I guess the Flyers know talent better than all of us but from what I've seen of him - he's just a better hockey player than all of Powe, Carcillo, Shelley, Nodl - and could easily replace any of them on any line. I don't think he would be the offensive boat anchor that Nodl is. Even if he can't finish at the NHL level at least he has shown some offensive creativity. Maybe I can see Powe having more of a place in the lineup because he is a good checker and penalty killer - but I'd take Wellwood over Carcillo and Nodl at least for 10 games and see what happens.
