lol I should have put a after ''NHLers are in better shape''. But how could you possibly know SEL players have better conditioning? There is a lot of NHLers that average 22+ min over an 82 game schedule + the playoffs. ''But the ice is smaller''

Some top NHLers are completely beast-like, are physical specimens, not just because of their talent level, but also because of their conditioning.
