Mind you, he may be training wrongly but that has nothing to do with lazyness. Unless I hear Gainey or someone on the coaching team saying Ribs is lazy and not trying enough to get bigger or otherwise slap him for his work ethics, I will keep my stance and give him the benefit of the doubt and not prejudge him.
You're one of the few people who know what they are talking about on this subject, so I applaud you. I tried bringing this up a while ago, but no one bought into it... When it comes to anything that might sound as a Ribs' excuse, people just won't listen.

I am 100% sure that Ribs' is an Ectomorph (I'd say 95% of the NHL are either Meso or Endo). We don't know how hard that he works in the gym, or how well he takes his nutrition, but I doubt that the staff (Scott) isn't helping him out in both domains. I don't think we should expect him to ever get up to 200pds, but 185 is possible (though I would expect 180).
