Philadelphia forwards Daniel Briere and James van Riemsdyk aren’t quite ready to return to the Flyers’ lineup from concussions; however, they did participate in this morning’s practice. reports that Briere and van Riemsdyk wore regular orange jerseys today, as opposed to the no-contact garb. Granted, both left the ice before the more physical drills started, but today’s appearance still suggested progress.

Also taking part in practice were Jaromir Jagr (groin) and Zac Rinaldo (upper-body), both of whom are considered day-to-day.

Jagr isn’t sure if he’ll play tomorrow when the Flyers host Winnipeg – he’ll make the call in the morning after he skates.

Rinaldo says he’s ready to go.

      This is coming from the guy who lauds (yes, its okay poonslayer, you can look that word up) Sidney Crosby, who went down because of one.of. the softest ‘hits’ I’ve ever seen.

    soup can sid is the best thing that ever happened to the nhl since lemieux retired. you can thank pittsburgh and sid for making people watch the nhl again. you can also apoligize to me soupcan and the whole pittsburgh nation for your outragious and down right foolish comments

      Never in my life have I seen someone so enamored (you can look that one up too, bud) and blinded by someone’s cock. I fail to see how Sidney Crosby of all players stands as a Pillar of Masculinity for you, man. Skilled player, yes. But masculine? We can review his long list of ‘fights’ (i.e. jumping people right off a faceoff) and ‘scraps’ (hiding behind Brooks Orpik, and referees when someone comes to challenge him).

        i don’t understand this post. you do realize the soup can makes him instantly more masculine than anyone else. maybe you need to look up some words. or just go to the local supermarket and pickup some progresso chicken noodle soup. then you’ll know what it feels like when soup can sid takes a piss.

      I don’t know of anyone who is a real fan of any sport that watches just because of one player. Anyone who watched just because Crosby was playing probably stopped once he was hurt, therefore is not a real fan of the sport. I have a niece who will watch football if Tom Brady is on, but I wouldn’t call her a football fan and claim that Brady is saving football. I hate Crosby, am a Flyers fan, and do hope Crosby comes back from the concussions (and apparently now a broken neck) because I know how much it sucks when your top player (Lindros, Pronger) goes out prematurely. That said- show a little class when it comes to other players trying to return from concussions. It will be a first.

    Can’t wait until Sid the Pussy retires. I only hope he plays a little bit more so someone on the Flyers can put the nail in the coffin. Please someone deliver the final head shot and end this tools career

    Can we have one post about the flyers without it turning into an argument about Sidney Crosby? Seriously. It’s a good story about two players coming back from a serious injury. We should applaud this instead of calling them “pussies” for avoiding contact and getting into a bitch fight about a guy who’s played, what, 8 games in a year? Grow up. Stop giving both of our fan bases a bad name.
