As Martin St-Louis said yesterday morning, the plan is for Juraj Slafkovsky to start the season in Montreal. We know the young man already has the physique for the job, but things are moving a little fast for him.

Speaking of physique, we can clearly see that he's lost weight, which isn't such a bad thing when you weigh close to 240 lbs. This time last summer, the Slovakian even weighed over 240 lbs at the team golf tournament.
"Juraj Slafkovsky confirms that he has lost weight this summer - he says he currently weighs around 102 or 103 kg (somewhere between 225 and 227 lbs)."

- Via Priyanta Emrith

That's over 10 lbs less than last year, with a summer of training under his belt. We also know he's been working hard on his breathing, to increase his lung capacity.
So, theoretically, Slaf should be faster and have more stamina. Two factors not to be overlooked in today's NHL. Add to that his talent and the fact that he's 6'3" and 226 lbs, and we should see a big difference over the course of the season.
