Just a few player tidbits I found while poking around, getting ready for our draft tonight. I know, I'm a nice guy for doing this but felt a duty to pass on the information.

  • Joni Pitkanen had secret knee surgery in finland over the summer. It's apparently still sore and the Flyers staff are pissed for not having it done in the States.
  • Mike Van Ryan has some issues with recent wrist surgery and hasn't been cleared to play.
  • Jaromir Jagr has not been cleared to play by team Doctors (not sure why)
  • Paul Kariya in nursing a sore groin
  • Danny Briere left last nights game with an apparent hip pointer
  • Mathieu Schneider left practice with some sort of knee injury
  • Todd Bertuzzi suffered bruised ribs in last nights game ( also has hurt feelings from being booed every shift)
  • Mike Sillinger left his last practice with an upper thigh bruise (Cam Neeley style)
  • Eric Lindros will be out for the entire season after injuring his wrist signing autograghs (kidding)

Note* This is not intended in any way to influence draft selections, unlike the last minute rule changes, which are. Good luck.
