Jim McCrossin has been with the Philadelphia Flyers organization for over a decade, and a member of the organization for almost two. He’s the team’s Athletic Trainer and Strength and Conditioning Coach.
He is a Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC) and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), as well as a member of the National Athletic Trainers Association, the National Strength and Conditioning Association, and the American Academy of Sports Medicine. Simply put, he knows his stuff.
Over the next 10 days, I am going to discuss the five teams that stand to benefit the most from the lockout, as well as the five teams that stand to lose the most.
Neither the owners nor the players want the outcome of the ongoing CBA negotiations to be a lockout, but both sides are prepared to remain in the sidelines for the first few months of the 2012-13 season.
A rare shot of Parent on the ice for the Flyers
Ryan Parent, former Predator, Flyer, Predator (again), and current Canuck (although not for long), has been a flop at the NHL level. Google “Ryan Parent bust” and close to 200,000 results come up (although many of them link to Ryan Leaf and/or the other definition of the word bust…). Parent was once an important piece of the trade that sent Peter Forsberg from Philadelphia to Nashville. Why has he fallen so far in only a few years?
