Del Zotto's off-season training

Saw this on TSN's site today, hadn't seen it posted anywhere. It seems to explain how it was reported that Del Zotto was looking bigger and leaner this camp...

We knew he spent the summer working out with Stamkos and under Roberts program, but nice to hear some more about it.

Hopefully this ensures he has no problems getting burned out this year and has a monster sophmore season.

I think it was Leslie who said that Del Zotto's arms look huge this year compared to last year. While I know a lot more than arm strength goes into your shot power, it'd be nice if that really helped him get a harder shot as well

Awesome.

Really excited for DZ this year. Especially considering his energy level was rough at the end of the year.

It will be really exciting to watch him. He has so much potential.

While I suspect I know the answer, out of curiosity, do players pay for camps like this out of their own pocket, or can the team pay for it? I imagine there would be "cap circumvention" issues if the team offers to pay for things like this, but at the same time, they are investing in their players health and ability.

Can the team only pay for staff and personnel that works directly for the Rangers, with players having to foot the bill for any training from external organizations?

Without double checking it; I think that the CBA prohibit us from paying for a camp. Like the CBA says that a team can pay for like salary and a few other things, and that every compensation of any form counts against the cap.

DZ had some great hits last year - I look forward to many, many more now that he's stronger.

Actually I hope he doesn't lose his man like that this year so he doesn't have to dump him in front of the net!

(also on Girardi for ignoring Kovalchuk walking behind both of them)

LOL, yeah. Pretty brutal coverage on that play, but heh, they didn't score.

Sounds like Stamkos is ready for another huge year. That kid is just getting better and better.

Hopefully DZ keeps up with his progress....

Crazy regimen from Roberts. Its really helpful though.

I havent read the CBA, but im sure if, say the rangers hired Roberts directly as a trainer, and told their young guys they have the option of attending this over the summer, would that be ok?

I mean, they are not technically paying for a 3rd party service, it would just be part of the team operations itself.

He went to the health food store a lot. Barry Bonds was making sandwichs in the back room!

""The other night I was playing in Edmonton and you guys showed me on TSN wolfing down popcorn," says Stamkos. "Right away I get a text from Robs: 'Stammer, lay off the popcorn!' I told him, 'Don't worry, it's organic.""

This is almost always what the best players do. They outwork everyone else and they are constantly trying to figure out ways to get better.

I remember being so disappointed when Prucha came back that 2nd year and was physically the same player.

seriously, he didn't know what sprouts were?

I'm surprised that teams don't put their players through programs like this during the seasons or during preseason.

Kovy isn't a small guy either, to push him down like that is no small feat...one handed no less. Hopefully the extra work this offseason will keep him from wearing down, at 19 and 20 his first 2 years as a pro can be tolling on a young body.

I've never eaten a Sprout in my life. So I agree with MDZ.

I wouldn't know a sprout if it hit me in the face.

Spaghetti and meatballs on the other hand...

Had a sprout once, and it was awful. Being Italian and only eating good food FTW!

Hoping for big things from Del Zotto this year.

The part about Downie sending his girlfriend to learn how to cook the Natural foods stuff cracked me up.

Yeah I love them, especially in any kind of Asian cooking. They're kind of like a crunchier tofu. They just suck up the the flavor of whatever you put them in.
