Malkin maybe? He looks like he could bench or squat a lot.

I've always wanted to see some videos of Jagr's workouts. I've heard that some of his more intense stuff would kill the average NHLer, forget just an average Joe.

Also on hearsay, a friend of mine hangs out with Todd Bertuzzi and says that even at this age, Bertuzzi is the most intense physical specimen he's met. Apparently his training in his younger years consisted of a lot of dashes and sprints, followed by running around bleachers with his trainer on his back, a bunch of football drills, and then hitting the weights.

I hear Boullion is ridiculously strong, and Kovalchuk definitely is...

On the contrary.
A 17-18 year old "elite" athlete that is unable to max bench press even their own weight? I'm sorry but yes, that IS pathetic. This isn't 30 years ago when players smoked in between periods and didn't really care about nutrition. There's a reason why Sidney Crosby is the best player in the world and it's not based solely upon talent like Lemieux and Gretzky. It's because he actually trains hard. A player who doesn't workout to improve his strength isn't going to reach his max potential and is going to be at a severe disadvantage when they get to the NHL and have to play against guys who ARE both strong and fast. Do you think NHL teams should invest millions into a kid who never sets foot in a gym to improve his strength/conditioning?

Linking us to images of NHL players with Body Builder type builds does not prove they are stronger.
Unless you name is Franco Colombu.

Any athlete not being able to 1RM their own bodyweight is pretty bad.

Douglas Murray. Guys like Doan pinball straight off of him. He wouldn't look out of place on a medieval battlefield.

Andrei Kostitsyn's sucha tank. Might not be the best around the league but I remember hearing that he impressed everyone on the training camp first day. Simply pure strength (aint talking about his dedicating to the game though!)

I think AK was the only one who actually rivalized Lucic and Chara balance wise every game. He was unknockable.

I doubt most of these guys do too much powerlifting outside of their legs. Training like a body builder won't do that much for a hockey player. Of course they'll use some weights, but I won't be surprised if most of these guys workouts is based on calisthenics, especially with some of them playing 20-30 minutes a night.
