I would assume that most players trying out at the NHL level move FAIRLY well. Most also come into camp in their best shape, I would assume.
That' the problem when you ass ume ..you can end up looking or sounding like an "ass" all Carlyle is saying is that he looks to be moving and skating well out there for a HW. Players don't always come to camp in good shape!!! Carlyle is old school no BS.
