yeah , i would almost bet av plays max's line more then the second just out of trust in the first few games , he could become that second line center fast
There's a reason why Lapierre was a second rounder in the deep 2003 draft.
He's more than a third line grinder. Maybe this is his opportunity to show what he can do offensively.

In my experience its mostly the fans who aren't personal friends with any pro athletes or trained at a high level themselves who usually live in a fantasy world, re: pro athletes and steroids. For some reason these people look at pro athletes as heroes etc.
In Canada for some reason many hockey fans have a real rime believing hockey players do steroids. They will get pretty riled up if someone suggest otherwise. Many times the reasoning is hockey players don't need to get big like foot ball players. These ppl don't know there are a 100 types of steroids and they don't all make you huge. Many make you lose weight, some help with endurance others with strength.There are different drugs for different goals. And usually they are taken in stacks with different types of steroids to achieve desired goals.
Personally I couldn't care less if he cranked or not. As long as he plays good and helps bring a cup its all fine by me. As far as I'm concerned there are many players on each team that juice.

If he bites his tongue and goes the route of Burrows and Kesler by focussing on hockey and not yapping all the time this guy will be a solid replacement for Kesler. 40 points is definately not out of the question.

Is 3 pounds a month really cause for steroid accusations? And why would your first argument not be to attribute some of that to waterweight and fat?

Even with good genetics, ain't nobody gaining 57 pounds of lean muscle even in a whole year. Impossible. Especially not a 27 year old who's probably been hitting weights since he was 14. Not naturally at least.
And I doubt he was training the whole time since the Kings game, we know he went on a trip to Alaska with Bieksa, he probably spent time enjoying the summer too. To gain 20 pounds of lean muscle in under a year when you've already been training for decades...you'd have to have really good genetics/steroids and a strict regime and diet specifically for the purpose of bulking and nothing else.
I'm not doubting he's made some gains. I'm quite happy to hear of his dedication. But I'm certain he hasn't put on 20 pounds of muscle naturally in such a short span of time.
when being locked out he can take whichever substances he wants without risk right? as long as it is out of the system when the lockout ends and camp starts that is
anyways, streangth doesnt always have to do with muscleweight. Kassian got stronger while loosing weight. Its all about coordination, balance and quality training.
Kettlebells for the win!

There is not a natural supplement in the world that can make you gain that much muscle in a year. Or is there?
Other ways to sidestep steroid testing and get amazing results is human growth hormone HGH.
Not the easily available synthetic version but the actual hormone extracted from the pituitary glands of dead People
It is some high dollar stuff. It is very hard to detect because it is water based which means you need to inject it daily unlike oil base steroids.
You also don't need to be on HGH to reap the benefits.
the genuine HGH cycle is like going through puberty again. It gives you a near permanent muscle base. It doesn't wither away like synthetically built muscle.
You can even take a homeopathic version, not nearly as potent but even harder to detect.
One way too tell if someone has done a lot of the real HGH is they get a eyebrow overhang caveman looking face. The perfect example of a HGH monkey is a old pro wrestler named Scott Steiner he openly supports HGH and it looks it.
I believe a lot of athletes do this periodically and I really don't see a problem with it.

As most know I don't buy into the "he's always falling down" stuff but even I would admit that at his height he is underweight if he wants to survive in the 2nd line.
As I was reading the above, my pleasure at the thought of Lappy being "even more powerful was tempered by the thought that players all over the league will have probably been doing similar development. If that is the case and Raymond has stayed at his 185 lbs weight he could be in for some rough rides.

He already seemed like a pretty strong guy before, he should be a serious load to handle this season.
