I couldn't find anything about Gaborik in the off-season, but could some Minny fans tell me whether or not he's planning on conditioning himself more or better so that he doesn't get injured at the start, or at least so the likelihood of that happening is less.
Was there anything about fighting knife wielding nazis in that article? That appears to be Branko's offseason training program.
That training program is still in development. I know some of the guys involved in trying to set it up, and they wanted to be careful with who they used in the proof of concept as they weren't sure they could count on the nazis to back off if things got career-threatening. Early results look promising, although the knifing was an ad lib and they aren't sure they want to go down that road.
I'm a Toronto fan...but there is all this hype about the Hossas and what not but this guy will put up 50 goals consistently, I mean when he plays it's basically a countdown to when he gets a goal or a point.
I just want a full season of him so I can really see what he can do. So far the only reason I'm hesitant to say hes one of the best players in the league is that no one knows if he would hit a slump at a part in the season beacause of his injuries. Be nice to see MN start getting some of the repect they deserve.
