By watching. Both of us do; you see a "clearly gassed" player (Larsson) and one who incurred injury based on too many minutes. I see a rookie looking just fine and a vet star in his prime, being challenged by his coach to deliver more across the ice. Not just put in his computer-dictated 18 minutes, compile offensive stats and go home.

But again, it's not our differing takes on these players tcondition that is the issue. It's the mentality of how to handle players.

No need nor desire to put words in your mouth. For they already exist, which is why I referred to them.
