Athletes are very well treated. Around the clock med help, strength and conditioning coaches, etc... They get private practice facilities with charter flights and so on.

I'm not trying to say they are spoiled or anything. I just mean it's not like they ride the bus, work on their own and have to learn the conditioning basics on their own time. Now people just tell them what to do, what flight to take. Everything's pretty much set up so they can focus on hockey and be productive at what they do.
