These players are real people. To you it's just a game you watch, but it certainly isn't for them.
So, basically you're saying that your life is vicariously living through other people's lives. I mean, that's the only way we get to the NHL really having any truly material value in your life.

That's sad.

A job is part of your life, but it shouldn't define your life... and you can, in fact, get another job in almost every case. So, life would roll on... completely independent from the existence of the NHL.

Also, are you insinuating that escapism is not part of life?
Sure it is... but there are many forms of it, and it does not in any way or shape define "life." That's specifically why it's escapism.
