Timonen's the only thing we've got on the blue line that we can call a top-pairing defenseman. Without him in the line-up...wow

everyone has a bad game now and then...unfortunately for us, his was last game

It's sad how people jump all over him and forget what he's done for us so far this season

Should be interesting to see how Schenn handles a game without him.

i'm not sure he had a 'bad game' overall .. i know i certainly didn't say that he did.

he had a brutal turnover on the 3rd goal. im just stating the obvious. i already had given him a pass earlier this year, on a few blunders, so i'm not one to 'jump all over him' ..... but last night couldn't be over looked, in my view

I remember watching him battle along the boards last night and it looked like he took a few really awkward steps. I remember thinking to myself, "How does he not hurt his groin right there?" I wonder if thats why

Can we call up Gus so we don;t have to have Gervais, Foster and Lilja all dressed at the same time?

The Finnish God of Defense is starting to show signs of age.

He's not nearly as dominant as he once was, and that turnover showed it.

That said, he's still got twice the heart of most defenders. He still steps in front of some of the worst shots and steps back on the ice the next shift.

We need someone soon who can replace that or our defense is going to get even less consistent.

Every great defender makes a mistake that costs his team a game. Everyone. Ray Bourque? yup. Nik Lidstrom? yup. Chris Pronger? yup.
Am I giving Timmonen a pass? no. Just pointing it out. The guy has been a rock for the Flyers. I shudder to think what we are like without him. Our "awesome" under 25 year old core is nowhere near as good with him out of the lineup. He makes the Flyers better. Without him? Yikes. I would rather not think about it.

We need Kimmo and he needs to step up his play as a 6 mill.$ man. Now if we can only get our other 6 mill $ player to step up to the plate that would help! Maybe playing in Montreal will jump start him.

It appears Gustafsson has been recalled for tonight's game. Still no update with Timonen's specific injury, however. Awaiting word.

agreed. i like him. pointing out his blunder does not change that. it was an awful time for it. and this time, the goalie didn't bail the team out, as has happened many times this year. hopefully he's back soon
