Most players tend to lose weight over the course of the season. So being up 25 lbs is definitely possible if the net gain is only actually like 10-15 lbs.

I dunno, Bob. I doubt Jared lost weight during the season. 

 

He had quite a good number of "off days" and "training days". JB even talked about "working with Jared.... putting on mass... getting bigger" yadayada

Some muscle, some water, some fat. He might be harder to check off the puck but his endurance and speed will take a hit until he adjusts to the weight difference.

I would say it's a textbook embellishment. I'm sure he has gained weight but not 25lbs.

Considering his strength was in his speed and tenacity - adding that much weight that fast could really hurt the part of his game that got him into the NHL. Its important to build muscle into your frame as you develop, but 25 pounds in a year could do more harm than good.

Not saying you are wrong.... But the bias within our fanbase, would lead to a lot of posts like this that would seem logical on the surface... But really, anyone with a bias that wants to come across as logical would write this exact same post....

 

Why don't we just see if it affects him? I mean how many fans were crying about how little he weighed last year? And now those same fans are saying, oh well he'll be too slow now.... It's kind of funny.

Should have fipped one of our other prospects for Gudbranson instead of McCann. This kid has so much swagger and determination he'll go far in the NHL, even on a stacked Florida forward group.

That's not how that works.

Boeser? Virtanen? Hard to tell who will be the best but I've got a feeling McCann's going to be a really special player and now he's got a huge chip on his shoulder too.

I need to see some before and after pics.

It possibly can't be a bigger change than the photos we saw of Dustin Byfuglien from a few years back.

that's a lot....too much.....it'll affect his speed and endurance

Ovechkin...Just because you add some size, doesn't mean you will become that much slower.

So he gained 25 pounds.....Yay? Good for him? 

 

Seriously?? 

Why is this even considered topic worthy?? All Hockey players gain/lose weight during the offseason.

 

It's as pointless as making a thread about Crosby saying that he just bought a new lamborghini.

An average human Gaines 10-15lbs of muscle A YEAR. Working out and eating right. He's gained 25lbs over a summer. That must be mostly fat

A summer? Didn't it just start?
