Ryan Parent is limping badly on his left side. Is it his back, groin, leg or foot? Parent won’t say, but did say he’s never had this kind of injury before and he doesn’t know when he will return. … Emery, Parent and Ole-Kristian Tollefsen (left knee sprain) all flew back to Philadelphia on Saturday afternoon and did not go with the club to Ottawa. … Emery grew a beard during his layoff. He said he might shave it off. “Not much need for shaving,” he said of his daily routine. ... In their last meeting, the Flyers lost to Ottawa, 2-0 on home ice on Dec. 10.
If this continues, the time is coming to cut bait with Parent. He wasn't even hurt during the game this time, it was warmups. His contract is up, and depending on how little the cap moves, there might not be enough room for he, Coburn, Carcillo, Powe and a goaltender. Not even counting OKT and Syvret in there. If Parent won't accept 2 years 900K per, then it could be time to move on.
