Not only that, but could a 350 fat-a** go out and be effective on a hockey team? NO, because he couldn't get a 35 second break after every play (which last at the longest 1 minute, and that's if a guy runs the whole length of the field in one play). I don't want to try comparing football to hockey, but in reality it takes a better athlete (note I didn't say more talented player) to play hockey IN GENERAL (not in all cases or positions). Then you factor in the "weapons"...
