According to the Albany River Rats website Rod Brind'Amour had a dominating performance during the Hurricanes strength and conditioning tests Saturday morning.  The Carolina captain finished over a minute ahead of his closest competition, (Tim Conboy), at the 5 mile bike ride.  He completed more chin ups than anyone else by far, (19), and also finished first at the one mile bike ride. 

So much for being over the hill at age 39. 

Andrew Alberts and Zach Boychuk also had impressive showings.

It truly is remarkable that Brind'Amour can out-work kids half his age.  Looks like he is pushing himself hard for a huge comeback year. 

I will be at training camp Sunday and will have a report Sunday evening or early Monday morning.  I will also be sending some Tweets if anything seems "Tweetable".  If you have not signed up for Canes Country twitter yet, we are at: http://twitter.com/CanesCountry.
