Briere saga rolls on -- out four weeks

The Flyers are reporting that Danny Briere underwent surgery this morning and that he'll miss four more weeks.

The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that center Danny Briere underwent a successful surgical procedure on his groin/stomach area, according to General Manager Paul Holmgren.

"Danny had successful surgery this morning to repair a nerve entrapment," said Holmgren in making the announcement. "His recovery time will be a minimum of four weeks."

The procedure was performed today by Dr. William Meyers at Hahnemann University Hospital in Philadelphia.
Thankfully, the Flyers are performing well without Danny. He's only played a handful of games this season and he's been pretty marginal in those games. We're fine without him. The bigger concern, to me, is that this has been a recurring theme with the Flyers organization over the years, as I commented yesterday. Of course the Flyers would never admit negligance on their part regarding a players treatment, but there certainly has been a pile of evidence mounting over the years to make an argument otherwise.
