We should be talking about the organizations mental compete level. I want to see our guys playing damn hard, finishing bodychecks, forechecking and not giving up on plays. Is the reason they are easy to play against relative to their fitness?
Penner did come in out of shape.

But ya your second paragraph pretty much hits the nail on the head. Although some players think they are giving 100% and don't know they have that extra gear
