To put it into a minor perspective, of just how good you have to be to play professional hockey. According to Wikipedia there are 499, 695 registered hockey players in Canada alone. There are 700, or so, players in the NHL right now. Obviously not all 500,000 are of elite skill level, but the percentage of NHL players, to just the number of players registered in Canada alone, it's 0.14%.

Obviously not the best measurement, but less than 1% of hockey players make it to the NHL. That is just how good these guys are. It's just crazy to think to be in the best 1% of any profession!
