Is Byfuglien The Fattest Player In The NHL?





I'm not sure I've seen a fatter NHL-level guy. It's painful to look at. Is there anybody fatter on an NHL roster right now?

This thread's not going to last very long but to answer your question:

Who cares?
It's his playing weight and he does well enough at it. He could have a very large ribcage/torso build regardless of the fat and he'd still look huge beside his fellow players.

He obviously has a thyroid problem and can't control it you insensitive anorexic model loving *******.





In all seriousness though, he is at least 30% bodyfat there, probably closer to 35%. I'm aware of overbulking, but anyone who thinks that that doesnt inhibit his play is delusional. He's got at least 15-20lbs of loseable dead weight that does nothing but slow him down. There's thick, and then there is double D gyno big.

Not denying that he's uber round in those pics, but I suspect they weren't taken recently. I doubt that's what's in the lockerroom right now.

While I'm at it... that's Buff, Seabrook next to him, Eager on the right with that corny green bowtie, and who?

I'd guess that even when he does not have all that extra weight on he's still as thick as an oak tree. Wich in turn makes it look like he's really fat when he puts some extra pounds on.

By a mile (or make a food joke if you like)

What a joke of an athlete, the guy probably just doesn't care.

He obviously cared more than you, since he's in the NHL and you're......******** on the internet.

I'm still amazes that a guy his size can move the way he does. I know those are old pics, but even in Chicago, when he got his engine going, he could skate.

There was an ex-pro player (AHLer) in my beer league one time, can't remember his name, but we called him "Stove Pipes" because his legs were as big around as old fashioned stove pipes. Anyway, he must have been 5'8" and at least 250-260, but man that guy could move. A great skater is a great skater, I guess. It probably hurts Buff more in the first three strides, but once he gets to top speed, he's flying.

I thought that top picture was confirmed as being photoshopped?

Yes he is a pretty big guy....to answer the question.

I know. He'll never win the cup, or be a major part of a cup run.

Just doesn't have it in him.



Maybe you should take his place on the Jets.

That first picture is from the lockout. I'm sure he doesn't look like that now.
