Try cross country skiing, mostly uphill, for 2 miles while wearing a gas mask.

By the way, few things are funnier than listening to Konopka talk to Larsson and Brodin about Swedish meatballs and Ikea.

What sport were you playing for that to be your discipline? Or is it a Finnish capital punishment thing?

Not a sport. Boxing. Helps with endurance while building lower body as well as bicep strength.











Just kidding. Finnish army. Fun times.

I can imagine.


Granlund, Bäcks and Koivu can counter with Finnish though.

Everyone else is like "What's going on?" apart from poor Bouchard, who's still in press box going "Que, eh?"

Break up the field into sections like this.

Run a full lap (go around the whole cracker)
Sprint a quarter lap
Sprint half a lap
Sprint three quarters of a lap
Run a full lap

The whole team does it in under ___ minutes or you all run it again. Offensive linemen never made it on time.

Ah. For hockey we did this one. Make a line on the track. Everyone jogs. Person in last has to sprint to the front. Once everyone had gone to the front then you were done. It was pretty fun and you're almost running a mile every time. And then do it some more.

Ah, similar to the Box of Fun in soccer.
Break field in half
Jog 4 sides, sprint 1 side-jog 3, sprint 2- jog 2, sprint 3- jog 1, sprint 4, go to the other half and start over. If you jog too slowly you start over.

"Indian" runs.

You guys and your structured runs

My senior year of lacrosse we'd just go laps around the lax field and the coach would simply tell us when to sprint and when to jog. Made it more fun.

Also did the Indian runs, btw. Killers were fun as well. We also had to do 30 reps of a small sprint in the wing area:

Stand on the sideline and sprint to the wing line, sprint back. It's 10 yards one way, and you had to run down and back and that would count as one. We had to do it 30 times in less than 120 seconds. Occasionally, if the coaches were pissed, in less than 100 seconds. Once we had 80 seconds. Might as well kill yourself instead of trying it.

EDIT: Fixed numbers, my math was off on what was a minute and a half. Oops.

Reminds me of lifting in high school...

Coach would put us through an ab circuit and just call out exercises randomly, usually after 20-30 seconds.

But he'd get easily distracted when other people came by to talk.

So if you weren't doing abs, you were pestering the Coach who would forget about the guys on the floor, who all now hated you.

TSN finally updated their power rankings.

Quote:
This Week 19 / Last Week 24 / Minnesota Wild7-6-2
Sunday's comeback win against Detroit, in G Darcy Kuemper's second NHL start, was Minnesota's first regulation win in February, but they're still 3-1-1 in their last five.
Still ranked behind Edmonton .

EDIT: Russo also has a new blog/story thing

Quote:
Josh Harding, sidelined as he tries to get accustomed to new medication to treat multiple sclerosis, hasn't skated with the team since Thursday.
Quote:
If it looks as if Larsson will be a healthy scratch in Edmonton, General Manager Chuck Fletcher indicated he might reassign him to Houston.
Quote:
After Sunday's victory, Yeo said what turned the game is the Wild getting "ticked off" after falling behind 2-0.

"That has to be there every night," Yeo said. "We have to play the game with an edge. Taking straight lines and getting there in a bad mood. That has to be part of who we are. It's more than just finishing checks. It's the stick battles, hard play with the puck, blocking shots."

That theme continued in Tuesday's practice when Yeo stopped a drill and snapped at the Wild for not playing with purpose on the forecheck.
There's more there about Kuemper, Brodin, and Larsson going shopping together and a few more quotes from Kuemper. A bit on the sick players as well.

From Russo's notes:

Quote:
In recent days, Zach Parise and Ryan Suter also have been sick.
Weren't they sick like 1-2 weeks ago (Suter first, then Parise)? Is that what he's referring to or are they still sick? Because prolonged illness is really not good.

Falk, Stoner, Spurgeon, and Prosser have been pretty terrible the last 5 games or so. All are bottom-pairing guys at this point.

Hoping Scandella gets a shot with Gilbert soon.

Prosser's actually been decent. Agree on the other three though, especially Stoner.
