Kimmo Timonen, sore right arm, questionable for tomorrow (practiced Friday)

http://blogs.courierpostonline.com/f...ing-sore-hand/

Quote:
After the game, the 36-year-old native of Finland was still sore enough that there was no assurance he’ll be available for the Flyers’ next game, Saturday at home against the St. Louis Blues.

“Well, we’ll see,” said Timonen, who was banged up in his 900th career NHL game. “It’ hardly anything serious, but it is sore, I’ll tell you that.”

The Flyers can’t afford to lose Timonen, who along with captain Chris Pronger is one of their best shutdown defensemen. Timonen began the night tied for fourth in the league with 18 blocked shots. The blocked shot that injured his arm was his only one against the Caps, who scored three quick goals early in the third period to break open what had been a tight contest.

Most of the coaches in the league are all about their players blocking shots....many of the fans love to see that too.

I'm not one of those fans.

Who expects their teams goalie to score goals? Goalies are protected from head to toe to do a job, which is stopping pucks.

If goalies aren't expected to score goals, why are skaters expected to stop pucks?

All it leads to is injuries.

I get the importance of blocking shots but it needs to be done correctly. Remaining on your skates and getting in the shooting lanes is one thing.....laying out on the ice to block a shot is another.

If a player in un-able to block a shot with his shin pads while remaining in an up right position, get the hell out of the way and let the goalie do the job he was signed to do.

It's not like there is some joke in net who needs to get bailed out by his players every game. The team went out and got the best goalie available in the off season, he is more than capable of stopping those shots without getting injured.

Eh, as long as it's short term I'm not too worried. We can compensate for a bad third pairing for a handful of games.

I couldn't disagree more.

i was at the game and saw the blocked shot up close and personal, i watched him on the bench for a couple minutes and knew he was in massive amounts of pain. he was slumped over hanging an arm over the bench for a couple minutes. no surprise he might miss a couple games, just hope he doesn't get another blood clot!!! we need you kimmo!!! walker lilja equals penalties and bad descisions with the puck!

That third pairing might be the slowest 3rd pairing in the whole entire league.

A lot of teams don't expect their goalies to score goals, but they do expect them to reliably distribute dumped pucks to the defense men quickly to facilitate a quick transition. In short, everybody's job is to do everything they can to help a team win, with no exceptions. Kimmo is doing, and does, a bang-up job.

Blocking shots leads to injuries, and less goals against. It also promotes a culture of doing anything to win, camaraderie and sacrifice . . . champion type ****.

The correct way to block a shot is however the hell you can get to it. He got to it. What's more, this was not a shot he blocked that wasn't a high percentage scoring chance. He didn't dive head first in front of a wrister from the point, it was a one timer from the slot if I recall.

And lo, the mighty Timonen was struck down, and there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Considering Lilja and Meszaros was TERRIBLE last night, leaving them together and hoping Walker can cover even a percentage of what Timonen does will be bad.

Two typical 6/7 D-men is not that much worse than one typical 5/6 and one typical 6/7 that most teams have. Normally our third pairing is better than that, but we can certainly survive a short stint of Walker-Lilja or another combo of our corps. I know that everyone thinks Walker is the worst defenseman in the history of the game, but he really is not that bad. He isn't a superstar by any means, but aside from his contract, he is a perfectly fine third pairing/extra defenseman. Him filling in for Kimmo or another injured player is about on par with any other 7th dman filling in for another injured player on another team. That's why these players are seventh defenseman and not starters.

This is it. Walker's contract aside, like most teams, when a starter goes down you get either a subpar player, an inexperience rookie or an old vet.... We've got two vets to choose from in the 6/7 slot.
