When I played Junior I was 6'2" 215 and a good amount of that was in my legs. Now 25 years later I could never carry that weight anymore and am down to 185. Most of the weight loss was in my legs. I'm not pushing guys out of the crease or fighting for the puck in the corners anymore so I don't need to be at an elite level anymore. I just wanted something that gave me new exercises and made me more fit. Mission accomplished.
Exactly. Hockey isn't very fun when you're gassed after 1, 60> second shift... when you can play at a high level for at least 1 game it suddenly becomes much more enjoyable.
