He's never been a player with an impressive looking physique, but he he was definitely a few pounds over his ideal playing weight in mid-January, regardless of him playing during the lockout. In training camp, he had a little bit of belly fat on him (relative to what you normally see of a current-day pro athlete; for the average person, he was in great shape). Hartnell and others teased him about it. That's long since forgotten about by now.
