News: Timonen (blood clots) confirmed Thursday that the chances of him playing this season are "really slim," Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Impact: Though he didn't announce his retirement as some expected Thursday, Timonen acknowledged that the blood clots in his lungs and right leg will keep him out multiple months, putting his career in jeopardy. Timonen will have to wait until January to see if his medical tests reveal any dissipation from the blood clots, but it sounds entirely possible that we've seen the last of the respected defenseman in the NHL. Even in the deepest of leagues, it's tough to justify stashing him on the bench until he returns to health, since it's certainly far from a given that that will happen by the end of the season.(RotoWire, )

News: Timonen (blood clots) plans on playing in the Flyers' benefit golf invitational Sept. 16, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Impact: Obviously, participating in a golf outing is a far cry from getting back on the ice, but it at least provides an apparent indication that Timonen is making progress. However, his condition is still viewed as a long-term concern, and the Flyers seem to be preparing for the upcoming season with the assumption that Timonen won't be available at any point.(RotoWire, )
