Soaking wet, maybe.

He could use that 10-15 pounds. I've stood next to the guy. He's solidly built, but lean. If he is mucking and grinding, I would prefer he takes up more space as long as he doesn't lose speed.

Wiki has him at listed at 177. That's 18 lbs less than your claim (and probably wiki is wrong).
Oshawa has him listed at 190.
So does the Flyer's .pdf of the training camp roster.

6'1 190 is not that big, either. Briere is ~180 lbs. He has ten more pounds than Briere.

Due to the shortened season, never having played at NHL intensity, and that taking a regular shift a massive workout, he could lose 6-10 lbs over the season as well.
