It’s hard to imagine a worse start for the Philadelphia Flyers.They lost their first three games. Defenseman Chris Proinger remained sidelined with severe post-concussion syndrome. Forward Daniel Briere wasn’t ready to start the season, due to a wrist surgery suffered playing overseas during the lockout.

"It seemed what it was called – no penalty on the play," he told CSN Philadelphia.
Then came news that power forward Scott Hartnell will be shelved indefinitely with a foot injury suffered when teammate Kimmo Timonen blasted him with a point shot.“We will know more on this within a day or two as we await results of tests,” general manager Paul Holmgren said in a statement.Briere could return on the weekend and move onto the top line with center Claude Giroux.

I can't say that I agree with this suspension at all.
Earlier today, Flyers' forward Brayden Schenn met with Brendan Shanahan about his hit on Anton Volchenkov in the second period of last night's contest. The video, shown below, is Shanahan's description of why it is deserving of a one-game suspension.
