It's also extremely unfair to comment on what he did in the offseason as you have no way of knowing what he did on a day to day basis and how hard he did or did not work. And if you say you do it's mere speculation and exaggerating on other situations that you heard about. I'm sure plenty of players went on vacation - I know there are pictures of him there. Just because you saw a picture or heard a comment that he was away doesn't mean he wasn't working out at other times, skating at other times, working out while away etc.
You're right, I don't know exactly...but it is pretty evident that he was not doing what a guy like Stamkos and others were.
