In the latest twist in this whole JVR soap opera, TSN is reporting that James van Riemsdyk does not, in fact, need hip surgery.
Paul Holmgren confirmed to CSNPhilly.com that this is true, despite telling us just days ago that JVR’s surgery was delayed because of an infection in his foot.
The Flyers initially reported after they were eliminated by the New Jersey Devils that JVR was getting surgery for a torn labrum. Then there was an inaccurate and ridiculous rumor going around that JVR was delaying surgery because he doesn’t want to be traded.
Now, he only needs rehab. Call me crazy but something doesn’t seem right.
