Seriously though, I like that he was boating while drunk, and you're concerned about his weight.

I would like to withhold judgement on Buff until I know what kind of boat he was captaining. One of my life dreams is to own a pontoon boat and go out and get hammered on a daily basis while drifting harmlessly around a lake. If Byfuglien was operating a pontoon boat, I say the charges should be dropped…really, how much damage can you do with a pontoon boat?

On another note, 286 isn't actually that bad for a guy that's listed at 260 - 265ish. Dropping 20lbs wouldn't take much.

Depending on how drunk he was -- as in, how many beers he had -- dropping 20 lbs may only take one trip to the can.

By this time of year all of the pro hockey players (not just NHLers) are back in the gym. Most of them have been there for a few weeks, already. For him to be that big is too much. He is not *that* tall.

Maybe he's just adding some insulation for the cold Winnipeg weather.

3 posts in a row by yourself. Did you know you can combine your thoughts into one post, and no one will think lesser of you? Smile

This guy could've been in the gym all summer and still weigh 286.

I saw him at the draft. He looked very chubby, and again this has always been his biggest issue

Being 280 fat and being 280 fit is a whole different story.

Chris Pronger is a beast and he is only 210.

He should stay away from the Byfuget.

If he had been training all off-season (or most of it) you would think he would not even put on 20 lbs... would you not?

In theory, he can peruse it all he wants, it's when he stuffs his face with a sample from every single plate that leads us to Fat Buff.

Now we're nit-picking IMO.

Having said that, the title of this thread should be "Byfuglien weighs in at 286lbs! (and byfugsted too)".

Yes, one would think that. He likely wasn't working out as often as he should, but continued to eat like a monster. None of us really know what weight he showed up to camp at last year, and what he typically goes through to get himself into "game shape". He's never been known for his speed, but regardless, he'd be losing some weight in training camp. Being young will help him a lot too. I imagine it's just a combination of youthful eating exuberance and an assumption that he'll be able to get into game shape easily.

He's actually known as VERY fast for his size. Last year he was like Bobby Orr at times.

I think all NHL/NFL/NBA players are considered fast for their size.
