Most of us GAIN earning potential as we master our crafts, build clientele, finish higher education etc.

I wonder what the #1 job of the ex-NHL player is?
I would assume the #1 would be sports journalism or working in some manner with their former teams. Obviously this doesn't get offered to everyone, but if you were to take a percentage I would assume they are the most common jobs.

The others? Who knows. But you hear of NHL players running through their money and going broke far less than you do with NFL and NBA players, which is both funny are surprising seeing as how the average player makes much more in both leagues.
