Well, after signing that 4-year extension, one would certainly hope so

edit: SolidSnakeUS beat me to it.

A nickname traditionally applied to players recalled from the minors after that team (in this case, the Phantoms) gets eliminated. It goes back to the days of a legendary player-turned-exec named Eddie Shore.

Green pants? I want a photo of those. Grossman must look like the Jolly Green Giant out there.

@sbaickerCSN "Nicklas Grossmann is in a typical black jersey today -- looks like he might now be cleared for contact."

@sbaickerCSN "Grossmann played coy yesterday when asked about a return, but signs point to Game 1 of next series (whenever the heck that ends up being.)"

So ESPN is saying Grossman doesn't look like he will be ready for game one and is going to be out "for some time." This is the opposite of everything I've read on here saying he is fully practicing and looking to be ready for game 1. Poor reporting by ESPN or did something happen?

The Flyers will have been off almost a week by the time they get things revved up for their second-round tilt against the Devils, but that time doesn't seem to have helped useful defenseman Nicklas Grossmann, who doesn't look to be ready to start the series on Sunday...Still, without captain Chris Pronger and Andrej Meszaros longterm and Bourdon and Grossmann out for some time...

poor reporting...he's been skating and Meltzer has him on the top pairing heading into the devs series.

ESPN probably paid a bum outside of the practice facility to get "a report". Meanwhile, they have in depth poker coverage or some other crap on air.

Honestly, during the playoffs, I don't think any team takes an opposing team's injury report seriously. They all lie. A player could have been shot overnight but would be "day-to-day" with an upper-body injury.

I doubt De Boer and company will rely on ESPN for information about the Flyers.

I was at practice yesterday and Grossman participated in full. So did Meszaros.

If anyone out there can get to the Skate Zone you should because it is awesome too see them practice. I took my son (Take Your Child To Work Day indeed!) and the look on his face as he was standing 6" from Jaromir Jagr was pricelss. Being able to get that close to them, all of them, is really cool and something my son will never forget.

I heard Talbot took a puck to the face and lost a tooth... missed that.

Also this will tell you what kind of person Laviolette is... practice over... everyone leaves the ice... except for Laviolette and another assistant coach. What were they doing? Moving the nets around so the Zamboni could clear the ice. Meat and potatoes man he is.

Good lord I hate ESPN. I wish they would just stop talking about hockey. All it is is poor reporting or talk about how violent hockey is. Ugh.

Hey, I've been on ESPN insider before. It's credible info.

I broke the story that the Flyers were scouting Bobrovsky on ESPN.

Grossmann skated with Coburn today.

Pairings:
Coburn-Grossmann
Carle-Timonen
Gustafsson-Lilja

Kubina-Meszaros was the extra set.
