TSN NHL Combine Coverage

TSN [url=http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=167627&hubname=]is doing some blogging of the NHL Combine which has been ongoing this week in Toronto.[/url] Yesterday was the first day of skills testing and a handful of top prospects got put through their paces. D Erik Johnson and C Jordan Staal scored the highest praise while W Michael Frolik, once projected as a top pick, also did well. C Jonathan Toews and C Phil Kessel struggled with the aerobic portion of the day while C Derrick Brassard was subpar in the weight lifting component.

They showed some clips from

OLN had some clips from the Combine on late last night. There was poor Jonathan Toews heaving in a garbage can, it was in the background of the shot but it was still evident. Not much fun on the bike from what was shown.

Re: Aerobics

I wouldn't read too much into that. The NCAA kids haven't played hockey in over a month now and that's the reason they've struggled with their aerobic conditioning. I don't think the scouts will jump to the conclusion Kessel and Toews are lazy because of it.
