What exactly is an "upper body injury?" Here's Rob Parent's report. But exactly what is ailing the goaltender is not exactly clear. As is their custom, the Flyers are keeping this kind of information top secret, announcing only that Mason is in fact suffering from the aforementioned "upper body injury." Mason got involved in a pileup and banged his head on the ice during the last week of the regular season. Is he suffering a concussion? We don't know. No one is saying. Not the Flyers. Certainly not Mason. There is the temptation to simply say that he is, then let the team deny it if they want. Flyers fans are among the most passionate around. They simply live and die with this team. Year in and year out they fill the Wells Fargo Center, playoffs or no playoffs. Seems like a lousy way to treat them when it comes to injuries. The truth is they deserve better than what the Flyers are giving them. For now, they will be to settle for the dreaded "upper body injury."
