The Flyers blue line takes a big hit in this injury. (link: http://www.nhl.com/i...s.htm?id=639281) Granted, the guy had a good deal of injury problems to work through last year, so the Flyers aren't entirely inexperienced in this area. Still, having Pronger and Mezaros out of the lineup, not to mention losing Matt Carle is not an appealing situation to be in.
What this means for us: The Flyers organization has not been shy in its attempts to bolster their defensive corps. With such precious few options available, this is likely to push Holmgrem to be even more aggressive. As the Detroit Red Wings are also in the market for a reliable defensman, I imagine prices are going to soar. I wouldn't be suprised to see a very strong package deal take Yandle to Philadelphia, even if its a vast overpayment. Holmgrem is a balls-to-the-wall GM. It will be interesting to see what comes of this.

Lol at all the philly fans panicking on hfboards and posting threads bringing all good dmen to philly without giving up giroux, couts, schenn.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

I'd expect the Flyers to look at Colaiacovo, Rozsival, or possibly Kubina.

Tough injury for Mezaros, seems he just doesn't have any luck at all when it comes to the injury department

This is similar to what happened to Ryan Howard in baseball, its gonna keep Meszaros sidelined for a while. It happened to Howard about 10 months ago and he's still feeling the effects and having mobility issues.

Tough on sports that use a lot of ankle movement, hockey turning skates and baseball shifting weight quickly. Could be a tough one long after he's recovered. I wouldn't be surprised to see the Flyers throw an offer out there for someone big, especially considering Weber fell through

Sucks when summer training sets you back.

Well, at least he wasn't dog-sledding or doing anything stupid/reckless with his body.

Hes always shopping. If I didn't know Holmgrens first name was Paul I would think he was a 16 year old girl

Kubina is already a Flyer, I see him almost certainly re-signing now.

It's a shame that Holland is so careful making deals... if he ahd Holmgrem's balls maybe he'd also have Holmgrem's Stanley Cup rings :(

This really sucks for the Flyers. Don't really mind the Flyers team...fun to watch, got skill. was looking forward to seeing them with Meszaros actually in the line up this year. He's a guy that I would have always liked on the Wings.

Free darkmanx!

You don't hear a lot of Achilles injuries in hockey (likely because of the stability of the boot), but I imagine that has to be a pain to come back from as a skater. Ryan Howard's a big guy and on the wrong side of 30, but that doesn't mean Mezaros won't also struggle. Too bad for him, good player.

I hope this means they trade for Bouwmeester just so the Wings don't make that mistake.

Holmgren will land [insert the name of the d-man at the top of Holland' wish list]. Holland wil say he kicked the tires, but, ultimately, he didn't feel the price was right.
