On Flyers’ Coach John Stevens

From Elliotte Friedman at CBC,

“His brother owned the one gym in town,” Roloson said. “And we would meet him there to work out. John took it very seriously, and eventually we did, too.”

“I believe his nickname was Rambo, because of how hard he worked out,” Blake said.

Stevens is still in excellent shape and expects nothing less from his players. During the off-day between Games 3 and 4 of this series, the Flyers didn’t skate but did have a weight-training workout.

But his impact extended beyond the exercise room.
