Sam Carchidi via twitter: Flyers Andrej Meszaros has an upper-body injury, more will be known today.

Frank Seravalli via twitter: Meszaros injured the same shoulder back in 2009. Missed 6 months after having surgery for a labrum tear.

If Knuble can still play forward, maybe Sami Kapanen could play D?

Le sigh.

Out a month. Ughhhhh...


Quote:
At this point, as general manager Paul Homgren puts it, the Flyers have lost about a player a game to injury.

The latest victim is defenseman Andrej Meszaros, who will miss about a month with a left shoulder injury suffered late in the second period of Thursday's 2-1 victory over the New York Rangers. The affected area is the muscle around Meszaros' acromioclavicular (AC) joint.

The loss is a tough one. Meszaros has averaged over 18 minutes on the ice a night in this young 2013 season, and is one of the team's more versatile and mobile defensemen.

Holmgren, however, is electing to remain optimistic.

"As far as being snakebitten with injuries ... I'm not sure we're much different than a lot of teams that are in the league," he said. "We've just got to fight through it and take the approach that it's opportunities for other players. ... That's just the way it's going to be. We've got to deal with it on a day-to-day basis, and I think the coaches have done a good job of that to date. But hopefully we can break this stream of losing a guy a game, and stay healthy."

Meszaros suffered a similar injury in March 2009 and missed significant time. He played just 52 games in the 2008-09 season.

This is what happens with a short training camp. These guys are playing like weekend warriors so the injuries aren't a shock. It really sucks.

If Homer is saying he's out a month hopefully it's only a separated shoulder.

this isnt good, unless foster comes back or someone that has a good shot, this team will probably have problems scoring.

LILJA RECALLED
Also accompanying the team on the trip is defenseman Andreas Lilja, who has been recalled from the team's AHL affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms, so that the team will travel with seven healthy defenseman.

Lilja appeared in four games with the Phantoms, posting two assists and six penalty minutes.

"He's played very good with the Phantoms," said Holmgren. "He's a good guy; he's got a lot of life to his game. I think he was real good for our young players down there and they got a chance to play with a guy who has been on a Stanley Cup Champion and been around a long time. He shows enthusiasm and a real good attitude for the game."

Kubina reportedly considers 3 offers from NHL, let's hope Holmgren doesn't go that way for a solution....

Well, crap, I thought Meszaros played quite well in these first four games, so it sucks seeing him go down with an injury. Especially after he battled back from a serious one for the start of the season. I'm not as pessimistic about Lilja as most here, though

I would like to see the Flyers bring in Brendl and Hlavac as well. Really work that ol' Lindros trade.
