I got the impression he was referring to the guys that attended camp last year and didn't make the team... not about Maletta, Bowen and Bateman. Realistically...how "out of shape" could those guys have been less than a month out of playing.

Most of those 95's would have went back and played major midget. Their teams don't have the resources to put together those kind of intense off-ice workouts. We've had this conversation before about there being a huge difference between being in shape and being in Spitfire shape. Spits model NHL style off-ice workouts so when they talk about "being out of shape" I don't think it's fair to completely leave it on the players shoulders because they don't have the same exposure at their home clubs.
