It takes a whole lot longer than a couple months to sculpt ones body from nothing. Galchenyuk has been working out for a lot longer than this lay-off. His legs are absolutely built which is a really good sign since he likely wasnt able to work out his legs much at all for the majority of his lay off because his knee was healing.

They have gyms in Russia. Any top prospect who wants to make a career in the NHL who has a dedicated mind-set and an excellent work ethic would've hit the gym at 13, 14 or at the very latest 15 years old. Grigorenko doesnt know what a weight is. He looks like me before I hit the gym and I was basically a skeleton.
