TK out indefinitely with a concussion

Recommended Posts

Per official Flyers channels. 

 

Also, Myers left practice with back spasms again. He's out for Wednesday, and the plan is not to call anyone up for the 3-game road trip, at least for now. 

 

Stewart and Hagg will be in. 

 

They will have no extra healthy players on the trip.

No hearing for the bum who hit him up high?

now could be a good time for JVR to remember what he's getting paid for.

Thats why we need  a couple of skilled big players who can be a deterrent to guys going after our skill players.  Who on our team could stand up to that neanderthal that took out Knonecny,  nobody. Ottawa was running us all night.You want a balanced team that can match up against any teams style. You dont want to go into the playoffs worrying about how you match up and drawing a bad matchup in the first round and getting knocked out. Balance is the key. In the playoffs its a tough , physical and grueling process with way more hitting and less penalties called. We have some very good small skilled guys but we need to replace a soft marshmallow like JVR with a physical skilled winger.

No hearing, no penalty, no comment, no nothing.

 

It was late and head was initial point of contact.  I've given up trying to understand the rules on this.

It's not clear to me that the hit is illegal or even bad. The worst part of the entire play is the suicide pass by Braun. A veteran like that has to be the one that shows the better judgement there and not try that. Or the pass has to be very hard, which is a way of telling TK that there is a big bastard closing on him fast.

I don't think the league, itself, has a good idea.

Agreed. I'm still not certain it was an illegal hit - I guess it was a bit late - but that's a different question from whether or not the league has a hot clue about any of it.

The hit was fine. Thats hockey. What isn't fine is the coach dressing a marshmallow line up against a team like Ottawa with Hagg and Stewart in the press box. The Flyers are lucky there wasnt 2 other concussions Saturday, Farabee and Jake were fortunate not to be pummeled.

You gotta give your teammate time to react to a hit coming...TK didn't have a chance.

But...but...but... finese and skill hockey is the way of the NHL these days.  The old ways of physical hockey are long gone. You dont need players like that

Yeah ask RJ Umberger about that after the Brian Campbell hit (courtesy of a Gauthier suicide pass).

I don't think it was even late, at least I didn't think that at the time.  I thought it was a solid, open ice body check.  The concussion was caused by their heads coming together.

Yeah. I mean, it looks late on slo-mo. But is it? And as much as their heads may come together, it's also the case that he stops TK in his tracks with his body.

 

I always remind people, painful as it may be to be reminded, that Lindros's first big concussion, the one that was the beginning of the end, was a perfectly clean open ice body check by Kasparaitis where there was no head contact whatsoever.

His name isn't Gudas and he doesn't wear an orange Jersey... so no.

 

I've been searching for a slo mo replay of the hit for days.  Anyone have one?

      Objective or not: 1) It's late.  Even in real time.  Not absurdly so, but late 2) He hits right into the chin first.  Principle point of contact, then the body.   Look, I like what has been a traditional open ice hit.  I'm not even sure Borowiecki had any time to change course--which argues against the "late" claim, but I'm really not sure he did.   What I *am* saying, though, is that I've seen less or similar get a fine or suspension.  At the very least, a droning
