07:30 AM ET 10.23 | Somewhat soonish, Flyers center Vinny Lecavalier will return from his lower-body injury. [He] also could find himself in a new position. Lecavalier has been sidelined for three games since being injured in the Flyers' 2-1 loss to visiting Phoenix on Oct. 11. Both Lecavalier and Scott Hartnell, who suffered an upper-body injury in the same game, are listed as day to day by Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren. Yet Lecavalier was extremely active during Tuesday's practice at the Skate Zone. Not only was he on the power play, but he moved to the first line at right wing with center Claude Giroux and rookie Michael Raffl on the left. "I feel there are more things I could do being on the off wing," said Lecavalier, who has a goal and two assists in five games.

Incorrect...2 1/2 years. The rest will be spent on the injury list.

And the Flyers will remain in their old one. Bent over a stump.

While most of his wet dreams involve Penguins I'm sure he'd be 'up' for it.

True, but his biggest dream is for Michael Richards of the Los Angeles Kings formerly of the Kitchener Rangers. And Duncan Keith from the Chicago Blackhawks
