Note that it wasn't all fat either since after the individual off-season training period, he had the best scores in the fitness tests along with dman Teemu Eronen. He just put on too much/wrong type of muscle. I'm thinking he needs to put it on more sensibly.
My guess is with an NHL training staff, their strength and conditioning coaches and the right nutritionist we can have him put on the weight the right way when he gets here. Is encouraging he can put on that much weight just needs people there to make sure in the next build up he does it correctly.

As somebody that constantly bags on his skating, it did look much better.
