Alzner was what, 6'2 205? Told me he wanted to lose weight and get down to 195.
I think in the grand scheme of discussing prospects developement, they had both filled out just fine. Brute strength wasnt Alzner's game, regardless.
I don't remember what Stevens' height and weight were his rookie season but he was exceedingly strong and even his HHOF biography says:
Debuting that fall with the Capitals,
the big, sturdy
rearguard earned a regular spot with Washington, and so impressed that pundits that he was selected to the NHL's All-Rookie Team.
And I will say again, it is possible to lose weight and gain strength. People lose 10 lbs of fat and put on 5 lbs of muscle all the time.
Alzner has clearly gotten stronger over the last couple years and it has definitely resulted in him being a more effective player. If you disagree that is fine.
