He's skating very smoothly and he's making the safe play.
The big difference is that Gustafsson still has potential room to grow, but Foster has hit his ceiling and Gervais probably isn't going much higher.

Any words on Mez?

He has to be close now, no?

Monday and Friday are the two dates this week in which a full practice is scheduled. A specific date for his return has not been determined; however, an update could be issued some time after Monday's (tomorrow) practice.

he's fragile, but still better than Gervais

Early indication is that Meszaros is not taking part in today's practice.

no you don't. his contract will be up before having to re-sign our RFAs. When healthy he's a good player and there's no point in using an amnesty on a useful player because of injury concerns when he only has a yr left on his contract. there won't be any better d-men on the market in that price range this off-season.

he's had some weird injuries recently so i would say you leave him alone and see if he can stay healthy.

I just hope he can get back significantly before the season becomes urgent (playoff push or actual playoffs). If a guy hasn't had a chance to gel with the team at all for a whole year, his return could hurt more than it helps.

As we learned with Pronger, flu=career-ending concussion.

Good sign: Meszaros seems to be moving around very well in practice. Would not be surprised if he plays Thurs
There is no formal practice today. Extras and injured are practicing, however.

I'm hopeful that with grossmann going down that Mez will back to prevent me from ever having to watch Foster play in a meaningful game as a flyer again

Just talked to Homer. Sounds like Mez is a longshot for Thurs. If Grossmann can't go, look for Foster to play.

Meszaros has been sidelined since Jan. 25 and has missed the last 20 games for the Flyers with an injured left shoulder.

Meszaros said he is “slowly” making progress and he was “working hard every day” to try to return. The shoulder has good days and bad. “It’s like the weather,” he said, “so it’s tough to judge.”

Meszaros said he won’t be ready to play until he has full contact and tests the shoulder.

“I haven’t had had that yet,” he said.

The Flyers originally expected Meszaros to be back in the lineup last weekend, but the shoulder has healed slower than hoped.

Holmgren said Meszaros, not a doctor, will determine when he is ready.

“Yeah, it’s mine,” said Meszaros of his decision to return, “but I want to talk to a doctor about it and see…if he thinks it can get worse or not. You don’t want to go out there and feel shaky, and maybe a little scared to not do the right play and get scored on. That’s not the way I want to play. I want to go out there and do everything I was doing before.”

Lines at practice today:

Timonen-Schenn
Coburn-Grossmann
Meszaros-Gustafsson

Gervias-Foster

Having a legit nhl defender with Gus will hopefully help him abit.
