Do these guys hit the weight room much? Many don't seem strong enough in the upper body especially.
Players hit the gym a lot, but few work out the upper body. Much work on the upper body is a waste, and actually negates players' speed and mobility. The lower body is important, obviously for skating, but also bodychecking, boardwork, protecting the puck and battling for position all come from leg strength. Fighting, too, will come more from core strength than upper body.
