Crosby is still at #3-4 on the list to recovery and has to remain symptom-free to keep progressing. Awesome news nevertheless.
1. rest until asymptomatic (physical and mental rest) 2. light aerobic exercise (e.g. stationary cycle) 3. sport-specific exercise 4. non-contact training drills (start light resistance training) 5. full contact training after medical clearance 6. return to competition (game play) There should be approximately 24 hours (or longer) for each stage and the athlete should drop back to the previous asymptomatic level if any post-concussive symptoms recur.
I'd never consider Edmonton to be HIP, but it's a really fun place to live. I had some great times out there, amd the cycling is amazing there. I'm surprized I haven't heard much about the Leafs so far. ANy rumours on the future of Eric Lindros?
