07:32 AM ET 09.12 | Welcome back, fellas. The fringe benefits of playing for an NHL team are innumerable, but no one promised it always had to be fun. And Day 1 of training camp, fitness testing day, is decidedly a pleasure-free zone. "The worst day of the year, every year," Montreal Canadiens forward Tomas Plekanec said. "It's awful," teammate Max Pacioretty added. ... Some of the consensus observations: defenceman P.K. Subban looks like he's carved out of marble, Brendan Gallagher's neck is starting to take on NFL linebacker-like proportions, Pacioretty and centre Lars Eller have bulked up noticeably. While the players will grouse about the drudgery of opening day, it's not like the day presents much of a physical challenge -- the days of players working themselves into peak condition in training camp are long gone.

That was my thought. I hope the Habs supplied everyone with their own whizzinator.

You sure they're not referring to his IQ with the marble thing?

Hopefully Markov isn't carved out of tinfoil or MTL and Carrie are in for a heap of trouble.

After PK Chelios, Emelin is almost as important as Markov.
