Should the training staff be replaced?

It seems like every season we have a ton of injuries at some point of the year. At some point, does the blame get laid at the feet of the training staff, and do we need to replace them and bring in an entirely new regimen?

It's something every team goes through...it's life in the NHL with an 82 game schedule. In the case of the Flyers, it's exacerbated by the tendency for Philly teams to play physical hockey...which leads to injuries.

the trainers have been fine. mcrossin even went up to stevens and told him he was giving kimmo a practice day off because he needed it. the guy is a strength and conditioning coach.

this isnt irresponsible actions. this is forethought. were not talking about injuries that were created due to neglect on the trainers part. briere coming back and getting injured again, wasnt their fault. he really felt 100%.

im pretty sure they al learned from the primeau situation about taking time to come back from injury.

can you lay blameon them for blocked shots? an adominal pull or a groun pull? these guys do stretches all the time. im not sure exactly what you think would cause a new staff?

I don't really think you can blame the training staff here. I mean they do enough stretches and you certainly can't blame injuries resulting from blocked shots on them and even less when they come from players getting hit from behind or elbowed in the head.

I'm starting to wonder, even outside of the actual injuries, just the way they were handled.

Most notably recently:

Gagne last year who was not diagnosed properly.
Briere this year who was allowed to come back too early.

This is my concern too. Not the injuries themselves as they will and are going to happen. For me it's the handling of the injury.

We can go back a few years and bring up Lindros' name too. Same staff isn't it?

I'd have to second that. Imagine if football injuries got blamed on teams medical staffs. Flyers still play that grind it out style(despite a quick transition game and smaller more skilled players), "if you want to dance you've got to pay the fiddler."

Every team goes through this, not just the Flyers.

maybe if they didn't let gagne play with "dehydration" last year he wouldn't have been lost for the remainder of the year and could have been healthy for the playoffs.

physical style may explain it some, but I get concerned by the seemingly endless number of pulls and strains that guys get every year not as the result of some contact but just in the course of play. I suppose it should be evaluated and probably has been.

If you discount Hatcher and Rathje then I believe the Flyers are actually on pace to have their FEWEST man-games lost this season out of the last 5 or more. If we didn't ****-can them in the past when we were at nearly 600 of a season then why would we ****-can them when they've improved to this season us only having some 300??? They will have cut that number nearly in half.

I still think there must be something in the damn water that makes the players brittle. Hell it happens to EVERY team in Philly, not just the Flyers. Maybe there are some long term effects from TMI that they aren't telling us about and it's in our water suppoy now. Maybe the injuries to the athletes in our town are the only noticable way we have of percieving it.

Oh no, I think I may be on to something with this. I think I hear someone outside coming to get me. WE AREN'T SUPPOSE TO KNOW. DON'T LET THEM GET AWAY WITH IT!!!
