He may very well be fine. It's a short season, no time to round into shape as the season progresses.

Did you read the tweet? It was about him taking a few knees at the skate. It (nor did I) make mention of how "jacked" he looked. It sure is a quick turnaround, and he is at a disadvantage compared to those that have been playing overseas, but let's not jump on the guy for being in/out of shape 24 hours after the lockout ends.

To the naked eye, he doesn't look like he gained weight, which is what I meant by the "he looks fine" comment. Unlike someone like a Byfuglien.
