All this to say that the Slovak is sparing no effort in trying to improve. He’s ready to work on every little detail that could give him an edge over the others.
I just hope Slaf doesn’t get too mixed up during games this fall. After all, if he’s always thinking about every little aspect of the game (and it hasn’t become instinctive), it might make him think a little too often.
Juraj Slafkovsky is definitely ready to explore all avenues to bounce back next season.
I spoke to the man who helped increase his lung capacity by 20%.
20% in elite sport is huge. https://t.co/yUp00m4I6Z

If he improves aspects such as his lung capacity, he’ll give himself a chance to be more effective on the rink and to repeat what he does well.
It’s all about the muscle’s ability to contract and release. We want Slafkovsky to be able to do everything 20 times, 30 times on the rink, but not at the expense of quality. – Michael Bretenar
Whether it’s with the help of a breathing mask or special glasses, Slafkovsky seems clearly ready to put in the effort to make giant strides next year.
Will he become the player he needs to be at age 19? Will it wait? I can’t wait to see.
– All the better.
– He didn’t like not playing every game in the playoffs.
