Flyers GM Paul Holmgren held a conference call with reporters on Sunday evening to discuss Vinny Lecavalier's injury.

He announced that Lecavalier will be out of the line-up for 3-4 weeks with a non-displaced fracture in his lower back.

Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren gave the following injury update with regards to center Vincent Lecavalier, early Sunday morning.

"Vinny Lecavalier skated yesterday (Dec. 7) in Dallas. It is the team's decision this morning for Lecavalier to return to Philadelphia for further evaluation by our medical staff. It is undecided if he will join the team in Chicago."

Lecavalier has been out of the lineup for the last three games (Minnesota, Detroit & Dallas) with back spasms, after scoring the deciding goal in the Flyers' 3-2 shootout win at Nashville on Nov. 30.

Sorry to hear about this injury. I'm a big fan of Vinny's. Let's hope he heals up 100% and gets back fast.

Sucks, hopefully we can manage .500 without him for a month.

Call up McGinn or someone. Rosey can't be a regular all of December.

McGinn is the leading candidate to be recalled, not official.

I don't know about anyone else but I really hope McGinn isn't the one called up. They need a faster skater who can provide offence, not yet another slow grinder. I'd like to see Straka given a chance just because he's a LW who apparently has a really nice shot and I want to see what he can do.

I have a hazy memory of the Golden State Warriors using a similar catchphrase when Chris Mullin played there. I admire the ingenuity, however.

probably means that they will call up Newbury.

Newbury,Rinaldo and Rosehill all in the lineup potentially.

Nope it's the Flyers. Burying better players in the AHL while playing stiffs on the 4th line is part of their philosophy....

Or giving talented players proper ice time in the AHL whilst plugs who can play PK fill the short 4th line minutes in the NHL.

Sadly with Vinny this won't be the first extended injury...his body is breaking down. This is what happens when you sign players his age.....

Vinny's 33 and only missed time in the past few seasons when pucks hit him on the hand and foot. Free agents get signed all the time that are his age and older. He was no more likely than any other player on the team to suffer a back injury.

Your post reminds me of people on the main boards who blamed Pronger's eye injury on his body breaking down due to old age.
