Eager Flyers work out, wait during NHL lockout

VOORHEES, N.J. (AP) - Max Talbot barnstormed through Quebec, laced up skates in Finland, and played for the Spengler Cup in Switzerland.
Talbot played all over looking for work because of the NHL lockout. But the Flyers forward returned to Philadelphia this week to start training with some of his teammates.
Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen and forward Jody Shelley are among a small group working out at the team's New Jersey training facility, as well.
They'll be ready if the call comes later this month with the announcement of a shortened season.
Commissioner Gary Bettman set a Jan. 11 deadline for a deal so the season can begin eight days later. Either way, the Flyers will be prepared.
