I wonder as well. IIRC, he took a shot off the skate 2 or 3 games ago. Gah, I recall the shot, I just can't visualize which game it was.

Holmgren discusses Timonen's injury prior to the game (Apr. 23)

http://video.flyers.nhl.com/videocen...241894&lang=en

"Bugging him for a couple of weeks."

"Everytime we tried to get an MRI, Kimmo said no, it feels better (in the past)."

MRI yesterday. No surgery.

"It is like an indentation but if he was to get hit it could spread into a fracture."

"Kimmo hates missing games. He was decimated yesterday when we told him what we were doing. He was in a bad mood this morning."

"I would probably say no..." re: would he have played if team was in playoff race?

It probably was the Toronto game, because that was the game they played most of the 3rd period without him and we had to defend a lead.

One more season to show Gus the ropes is well worth the money!

this was written a couple days ago:
Quote:
Holmgren said the injury had been bothering Timonen for a while but every time the club offered to get a detail MRI of the foot, he backed off.

Timonen took a shot off that foot on Feb. 16 at Montreal and it seemed to bother him ever since.

Obviously, Timonen, who frequently had a walking boot on at practice, feared the worst of an MRI before finally conceding to one this week.

A compression fracture is an indentation that can become a full fracture if not permitted to heal.

“The doctors thought where it is, the potential risk of something much worse if he got hit there in the same spot, you’d be asking for trouble,” Holmgren said. “So we shut him down."

VOORHEES, N.J. - Kimmo Timonen has been doing a lot of thinking. Heck, his internal conversations with himself have gone back to last summer.

And the result of all of those quiet talks in his head is one ever-growing notion that next season, very likely, will be his last in the NHL.

“To be honest, I’m going into the summer thinking this might be my last year,” Timonen said Thursday after a workout at Flyers Skate Zone. “The mindset I have right now is that I just want to enjoy every moment next year because that could be it. It makes me excited. It’s one of those things when you feel like this could be it. You want to enjoy your time.

“I’m not saying this is 100 percent my last year, but it could be. It’s definitely pretty close to the end. I’ve tried to enjoy every moment and I want to come to camp in really good shape so I can play a lot of games and a lot of minutes and really try to enjoy next season.”
Quote:
Yes, he missed the last few games of the season with a broken bone in his foot, but that was six weeks ago. He has healed now and he feels great.

“It was a broken bone [in my foot] from a blocked shot,” Timonen said. “Two weeks earlier we noticed it. I tried to play through it but it was getting to the point where it was really sore after the games, but sometimes that happens when you block shots.

“I’m actually 100 percent. A good example is I played tennis yesterday. If you have a broken leg you can’t play tennis. So it’s good. My back feels great [too] and I’m really excited to go into the summer healthy and get ready for next year.”

lets hope "might" is the operative word in his statement. I'd probably be down offering him 6 every year just to keep him playing for us, although, I do hope we trade him too, so that he can win a cup.

Timonen said in Finnish TV interview that next season might not be his last. If he stays healthy, gets ice time and plays good hockey he may play one more season. But won't sign a contract before next summer.

Flyers have hinted a job for him after retirement but Timonen haven't done decision staying in NA after the career or moving back to Finland.

He was excited about Olympics which would be his fifth(!) Olympic tournament and that would be great way to end national team career.

Interview is here in Finnish: http://areena.yle.fi/tv/1947285

Fact: Kimmo Timonen can squeeze an alligator and reduce it to fossil fuels. That's where he gets his gasoline.

Timonen was good stat wise last year. I know he had breakdowns, but a lot of d-men do.

Timonen has never gotten the attention he deserves. He was 6th in points last year while playing excellent defense.

Fact: Kimmo Timonen invented the alphabet.

I hope the times last year he got beat so badly he had to give away penalty shots were because of the injury.

Honestly, we reallllllllllllllllllllllllllllllly need to convince Timonen to stay one more year.

It'll give Gustafsson, Morin, Hagg, and Gostisbehere each two more seasons of development.

That's perfect honestly.

Where would Kimmo rank in terms of most badass Philly athletes of all time?

I would love to have him back next year depending on his play of course. We all have seen he has lost a step and injuries can catch up extremely quickly, especially on an aging vet. If Kimmo comes out blazing, and finishes strong as well, I would be glad to get him back here.

Also if he does come back, I would love to know how much he would be willing to except? Mark Streit would then be our most expensive defender at 6.25 million(salary). Flyers made it so this year he was still our highest paid defender. I wonder if that stays the same if he does return. Also, I wonder if he would look to play elsewhere as well, giving himself the best chance at a cup that he can.

Flyers have 12M in Salary Cap Space.

If Timonen is signed for another 6, that leaves 6 for next year. Add in 4 for increase. 10M to sign Gus/Couturier/Schenn + anybody else they thing they need.

He'll have to be willing to take less money. Maybe only $4 million.
