A couple of posters in another thread brought up something on Eakins and his fitness levels. How we should be wearing teams down because we are so in shape (not exactly his original words, but maybe inferred). He obviously preached fitness and showed us why by playing Nuge 28 minutes his first game back.

Here's the thing though.

Eakins admitted to the team looking tired after the last road trip. Isn't this exactly the type of game, a home game after a long road trip, that our Sasquatch fitness levels are an advantage. Granted, he probably hasn't had enough time to reap the results of any plan he has in place, but this raises a question. What exactly are they doing above and beyond anyone else? There has been no reports or word come out of the Oilers hitting the weights and bike after games. No crazy fitness equipment they are bringing in, I can't even find a news article newer than training camp on Oiler fitness, nothing in the first episode of Oil Change. You'd think something would have leaked about it. Anyone got anything?
