Explain this crap to me. How can an athlete not be able to do one freaking pullup? He's 6ft, 180lbs. That should be easy. freak, I can do ten and I'm 230.

I wonder if Schultz will take the Cup back to Calgary or bring it here to parade before the haters?  I'm OK either way, just so long as they beat the rags, hopefully in four.

It is kinda mind boggling. Saw a picture and he looks pretty lean up top. And if he is 180 with a lean upper body he puts probably has big legs. 6ft 180 is a pretty good size to the average person on the street. Throw in some long limbs and a disproportionately heavy bottom and I see how it could happen as you take away upper body strength and add weight to pull.

I hear ya Slate.    Regardless of his body make up, I think a young pro/semi-pro anything ought to be able to do one pull up.   Hell, I'm an old man with torn rotators (6'1  ...   185lbs.) and I can do a few after a couple of IBUprofens.  :)      Of course, we don't get paid to put the puck in the net.

sounds like a kid who will get drafted and told to put 30 pounds on his upper body.  One run in with Lucic or Ovie will teach him.

Saw a little of the game.  But not the OT. Must have been a classic.

Who were you cheering for?  😀
