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.
