07:24 AM ET 06.14 | Evander Kane made headlines Thursday with the news of his surgery, but the Jets have what might be considered a big problem on their hands. Dustin Byfuglien is going to be mentioned in trade talks as the NHL draft draws closer and the talking point that will be raised again and again is his weight. It was evident Byfuglien grew heavier this season as the games moved on and according to accredited Jets blogger Pete Tessier, the player's weight rose to 302 pounds by season's end. If there's any truth to this number, Byfuglien is virtually untradeable. Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff can't engage in trade talks with another GM and keep Byfuglien's weight off the table until the very end -- then hit his colleague with an, "oh, by the way, Buff's a little big right now."

I read on twitter two days ago a guy on hockey buzz (start laughing) wrote about this. So my guess is Gary Lawless picked up the story and ran with it. If it's not him or not about this, then I apologize, but I could see this happening two days ago.

As for your question, well.....

My guess is Buff is on a 3 Big Mac per day diet in order to get the hell out.
