There was a psychological study where they paid people to do some labourious task.

Some people got payed something dumb like $1.00/hour while the others got payed a fair wage.

At the end, they gave everyone a questionaire to determine how they liked the work and what they thought of it.

The people who got paid the least somehow enjoyed it the most! Their brains convinced themselves that if they're doing it for such little reward, then it much be fun or pleasurable.

I think its the same thing with these hockey players.
