Quotes from Holmgren within Tim P.'s HockeyBuzz column:

http://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog/Tim-P...-Emery/2/24801

Quote:
Lowlights from the Paul Holmgren presser:

“The tests and MRIs … showed the tear in the abdominal wall,” Holmgren said. “We tried to approach it through rehab and cortisone injections, but it wasn’t progressing to the point where either us or Ray felt comfortable moving forward.”

Flyers said he was injured sometime before the West Coast trip in mid-November. That corresponds to his 5 losses, 1 win, one no-decision since Nov. 14. That would check out.

Emery been very difficult w/Philly media. Now we know why.

“You know how hard he practices and Ray is a down, young man today because he feels like he let his team down,” Holmgren said. “He’s been fighting through this and trying every which way. He couldn’t practice the way he normally practices.”

This might be exactly what the team needed. Now everyone else realizes that they are going to have to step it up, and once Emery comes back, everyone will be firing on all cylinders and with Emery back and healthy, things should be sweet.

Agreed. Especially with the way these guys are playing tonite. They realize that they can't just coast here and everything will be fine. Gotta give it all you got every game and once Emery returns this team will be able to fulfill their lofty expectations.

Here is a Q and A from Holmgren: http://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog/Tim-P...script/2/24801

Quote:

Paul Holmgren transcript courtesy of the Flyers:


Q: Paul, can you tell us how this injury happened, and where and when?

“It’s been bothering Ray [Emery] probably since, I want to say, before mid-November, and it’s gotten progressively worse. The tests and the MRIs and everything that we had done showed the tear in his abdominal wall. We tried to approach it through rehab and through cortisone injections and stuff like that. It just wasn’t progressive to the point where [we] or Ray felt comfortable moving forward, so we decided to move ahead and get this surgery done.”



Q: Was there a specific game where he was injured?

“He can’t pin-point a specific game. I want to say it was certainly before we went out on the west coast where it started to bother him, and I think on that trip it continued to get worse and worse.”



Q: Is this at all similar to Simon Gagne’s injury?

“Well, I won’t know that for sure until tomorrow when the doctor gets in there. The actual way the doctor terms it, it sounds like it’s similar. But again, we won’t know until tomorrow.”



Q: Are you baffled at all of the groin/abdominal injuries this team has suffered?

“I’m not sure we’re alone though. I think it’s a league-wide thing. I think a lot of it is just the speed of the games since the lockout. Because of the new rules package, it’s a lot faster out there. In terms of goaltenders, it’s chaos in front of the net with shots coming from every angle, bodies coming at you. There’s a lot of things going on at a very high rate of speed.”

Some of which is of his own making, with the absolutely mind-bogglingly stupid move of putting Randy Jones on recall waivers. We have no room to make a move for a goalie now, so it's on Boucher and Backlund to carry them for the next month and a half.

I actually do have some faith in Boosh, but I was a big fan of his back in the day. Time for him to prove he's still got it.

This explains a lot. I applaud him for playing through it and trying, but it hurt the team, and its obvious now why he played so poorly. With that being said, I retract anything I said here, or on facebook that was negative about Ray Emery. get Well Soon!

What's the situation in Carolina? With the return of Cam Ward, where does that put Legace?

Or is that like having two backups?

Honestly, I hope they leave things be. Weather out the six weeks and continue to use Boucher and Backlund. The Flyers don't need to make any cap busting deals like they did last year when Parent and Jones were hurt. It's time to put the onus on the players to perform and make the goaltender's job as easy as possible.

Legace is bad from what I remember. But they waived Leighton.

Backlund has to at least be given a shot or two, before making some sort of move.

It's really the only rational choice.

Emery article courtesy of my friend at CSN

http://www.csnphilly.com/pages/landi...859&feedID=704

Quote:
Emery was diagnosed with an abdominal tear after an MRI he had last week. He will undergo surgery Wednesday, and is expected to miss at least six weeks.

The Flyers' starting goaltender said the team had been aware of his injury for some time, but that he had hoped to play through it.

"I want to play and I want to help my team," he said. "If they wanted me in there, I was willing to be in there. But it's a case where you're hoping the next day you're going to wake up and it's going to feel a bit better, and gradually get to the point where you're feeling 100 percent."

That never happened.

Then-coach John Stevens knew about the injury, Emery said, but added that he did not feel his recent struggles contributed to Stevens getting fired.

“I talked to John,” he said. “John knew the situation I was in, he asked me to be in there. I feel bad that things happened the way they did, but guys were informed. I liked playing for him and thought he was a great coach, but those aren’t my decisions.”

I actually cant wait till Backlund plays. The Phantoms have been pretty average this year and it would be good to see how he has coped so far. If his first game he goes and lets in 4 goals, then yea, you pull him and but Boosh in. You never know. unless they plan on running Boosh into the ground for the next 6 weeks, Backlund will get a chance.

No trade is going to be made. The tandem of Boucher/Backlund will have to hold the fort in the meantime. Oy vey.

If you listen to Homer's press conference it's pretty obvious that the team is going to look to trade for a goalie at the first hint that Boosh and Backlund can't hack it. I'm going to say it's 50/50 that we have an under 2 million dollar goalie on this team in the next week or so. Biron would not surprise me in the slightest but I think making any move would be a mistake right now. Emery played poorly due to injury, otherwise he is ****ing solid. No reason to make a change. Let Emery sit for a month or two and let's see if Boosh can perform up to his potential.

I feel so bad for ray. He fights as hard as he can to be on the team and support the players on the ice, but knows in his head that his injury is getting worse. He didn't mention anything to the media, kept it to himself so the panic buttons wouldn't set in.

All in the while he's playing like a putz the defense hangs him out to dry in 3-4 games. All through this we have heard how he's back to his old ways, he's a locker room cancer, he hasn't changed at all, there was a reason he was in russia. To me it seems like he was one of the only two players actually giving a **** as to what the flyers were doing. (briere being the other)

I salute you Ray. When he gets his injury sorted out, we are going to the finals.

My thoughts exactly. Let's just hope the team isn't in too deep a hole by the time he's healthy again.
