Really. Hockey players generally play 3 times a week. In-between those games they are almost always training. These guys are paid millions of dollars to be responsible athletes.

Is it really that strange to think that they shouldn't be drinking through the season. Makes you wonder how bad it was for them to bring in the policy in the first place. I've never heard of a team doing this ever. If you can't go a month without drinking, then you have a problem.
