It's a normal thing. PK will take a few games to get into proper game shape, but he'll only get there if he starts playing. Whether they wait to put him now or later doesn't really make a difference.
That's an interesting point. I don't see a coordinated off season training program. Seems like everyone is training for strength, but not necessarily other equally important fitness goals.

Lotta of shots of PK's guns and stories of Patch hauling a half ton sled. Are they working on reflexes? Skating? Shooting?

I would think it was advantageous and intelligent to help tailor every players off season training to their specific needs.
