If management prefers Jaro Halak in the long-term, they better make sure he's put on a training regimen in the summer. The guy needs more physical strength, it's obvious!!

(I still hope they don't trade Price though because I think it will be a mistake...)

I'm not quite sure the impact of a summer training will be big enough to still be felt 8months later.
I think it has to do with experience. The way he prepares himself before the games, his nutrition, his sleeping.

If you work out your cardio like crazy in the summer, but have a poor start while Price has a good one and you end up playing 4-5games during that whole month, that training will have already lost its affect.

He needs to go through it, and try to adapt. Not every goalie is capable either. Gerber started for 4 games and replaced Ward twice. Cam benefited from some days off. It didn't prevent him from winning the Conn Smythe.

This is not something a few months of harder cardio work will do.

Halak just seems too slight...not sure he can handle 55-60 games per season...

I'm still stewing over the 4 PP goals and the 5 goals allowed on 20 shots. The Penguins had a simple but effective game plan, and it worked: Post forwards near the crease to block Halak's field of vision and fire away, I wonder what the coaches come up with to prevent a recurrence.
