He did not prepare himself physically for the season, which is evident. He looks especially out of shape.
If that's true (I'm not in the room, so it's impossible to really tell), that is very disturbing.

This is a guy who is a veteran and a leader, has a letter on his jersey, and he's being counted on heavily by management and the team. I know he did a ton of charity work after hurricane Sandy and I commend him for it...but was it really that hard to spend a few hours a day in the gym?

I'm hoping for his sake it's some sort of nagging injury or illness.
