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.
This is the exact reason why I thought he was talking about current guys. Those other guys don't have the facilities that can be utilized to stay in good shape or get in better shape.
