Pretty funny read so far... "so and so" did the "such and such" test and then proceeded to vomit after it was done.

Poor kids.

Brings back the memories of puking at practice... and puking right before a game usually because of the night before... especially on road trips... heh heh.

Ahhhh... good times.

Schroeder and Palmieri apparently dominated the bench press so far, 17 reps so far, the most reps I have done is with a bucket of chicken in the last 5 years.

just by reading that I have burned 3000 pretend calories lol.

back to the Combine though, the big boys are coming up this afternoon, Baby Schenn, Kane, the coveted Duchene, Hedman and Tavares. MPS wasn't included, very interesting, a lot of eyes should be on this guy.

Here's some pretty exciting news:

NHL.com wrote: New look coming to Central Scouting Web site

With the start of the fitness testing portion of the 2009 Scouting combine on Friday, fans will be able -- for the first time -- to track the progress of some of their favorite prospects.

NHL Central Scouting's public Web site (CentralScouting.NHL.com) has been redesigned and will be re-launched Friday morning when the first group of prospects begins the fitness testing at 8:30 a.m. ET.

"The top 10 in each of the combine categories will be posted, along with the average score of all the competitors," Director of NHL Central Scouting E.J. McGuire told NHL.com. "This is very parallel to the NFL Web site where they publish combine results. We designed it after that."

While there is no on-ice component to the combine tests, there are a number of other measurements that will be taken. Among them are basics like height, weight, wingspan and flexibility.

Strength measurements will include tests for grip strength, bench press, timed push-ups and sit-ups, vertical leap and distance for a seated medicine ball toss.

The two most important tests are a pair of stationary bikes, which measure aerobic and anaerobic fitness.

The Wingate cycle ergometer test measures a player's anaerobic fitness by testing their maximum power output during a regular shift length.

The players' aerobic fitness is measured through a VO2 max test. This test attempts to measure how much time a player needs to rest between shifts.

The new look to Central Scouting's Web site only begins with the combine. Fans soon will be able to track more prospects as the site is further populated with things like statistics and schedules.

"The new structure and foundation allows us to load a lot more and a lot more current data on that public Web site for the consumer," said McGuire. "While the curtain was up, a lot of good improvements were made and we think the foundation is there to make a better product for the public to use."

Pretty cool stuff...

some of the info from the big boys, some intriguing speculation that Tavares may have an upper body injury, wonder how that will hurt his # 1 status?

2:25 pm - Some of the big boys were in this group and there were some big men on hand to watch. NHLPA agent Pat Brisson, Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke, Leafs' Senior VP of Hockey Operations Dave Nonis, Leafs' Senior Advisor Cliff Fletcher, Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson and Panthers GM Jacques Martin are all in attendance.
Possible #1 selection and OHL leading scorer John Tavares did not do upper-body exercises at all, leading to speculation that he has an upper-body injury. He did do 46 sit-ups, which is one of the highest totals seen on the day. Tavares is fit but there's obviously something going on - possibly a shoulder injury - as he did not do push-ups or the bench press. Tavares did do cycling and is looking good.
Evander Kane (#3) had an excellent workout. He had 17 bench presses, which ties the unofficial high for the day. Kane also did 47 push-ups, which seems to be far and away the best so far. In general, the 17-year-old looks like he's in really good shape. At 6'1, 176 pounds, he has lots of room to grow but was certainly ready for this judging by his workout.
Zack Kassian (#10) did an impressive 16 lifts on the bench.
Fourth-ranked Brayden Schenn did not get into the room until the next group started doing their exercises, so Schenn will probably now be going with Group #5.

Interesting... any Sens presence there? I have not seen any mention.

Tavares must have a shoulder injury... that's not good timing...

The Sens are waiting to get an idea of how many first-round picks will be left after Burke decides how many he will take this year.

No sense in doing too much when you're just waiting for leftovers.
