It would be surprising given, as many have said, Pacioretty is supposedly something of training/fitness nut...but I guess it's not unthinkable. Some NHLers probably do (or did) treat going overseas as something like a vacation. Or maybe they figured the lockout would be over soon and didn't put as much dedication or preparation into it as they should have. Evander Kane in Russa might be a similar example.

Anyway, let's not forget that despite all the rumours and hearsay, we've never heard Pacioretty's side of the story. Maybe we never will either, but I think it would be wrong to take everyone else's comments at face value with hearing the other side of things.
