Flyers forward James van Riemsdyk has been the subject of some trade rumors over the past week. Now his name is the latest one added to the list of NHL players out with a concussion.

Said Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren on Saturday, "James was hit in the head in each of our last two games. He reported yesterday, not feeling like himself. He will be out indefinitely with a concussion."

Philadephia has been hit hard with concussion issues this season, as van Riemsdyk joins teammates Claude Giroux, Brayden Schenn and Chris Pronger (likely out for the season as a result of his) as players to miss time this season with one.

In 37 games this season he's scored 11 goals and recorded 11 assists.

Over the past couple of days the rumor mill has been swirling with van Riemsdyk's name being mentioned as a possibile target of the Toronto Maple Leafs in a deal that would have involved Luke Schenn. As should be expected, both teams have denied the rumors.

James van Riemsdyk has a concussion

JVR was great in the playoffs last year.  I think it raised expectations a little too high for the regular season.  I still like the physical game he brings and I hope they do not trade him if only for the chance that he might step it up in the playoffs again.

I'm shocked they are shopping JVR. The guy is only 22 years old. Ask Dallas how they feel about getting rid of the 23 year old James Neal. Too bad about the concussion, though - hope he gets better.

Carter was probably our best player last year, if he turned into Carter that would be fantastic.

The Flyers were shopping him. I highly doubt that they made up a concussion to kill the potential trade, and then decided one of their best players should just sit out for a few weeks or months.

JVR has not been playing well this year.  He seems passive and uninvolved.  Maybe using this as an excuse to give him some rest and see if he can come back with the fire he had in the playoffs?  I would not be oppossed to trading him, he is starting to remind me of Carter.
