I think the saying goes:
"Good conditioning won't turn a good player into a great player, but poor conditioning will turn a great player into only a good player."


Aside from that, there's also something to be said for being in 'hockey shape'. I'm not in great shape, probably never will be, and when I've been off the ice completely for a couple of weeks, no matter what other physical activity I've been doing, I feel like a bag of crap for that first ice session back. But once I get a couple of games in, I don't feel so bad, and don't feel like I need an oxygen tank on the bench.
