I know it isn't as glamorous, but nothing is stopping these guys from getting a decent job when they're hockey career is over.
Most NFL'ers have to (career average of 3 years) find work after.
What is so special about athletes that if they burn through their initially high income that they are too good to make a modest living after?
We agree on this unfortunately, the idea that players should not have to work after they have played NHL hockey for a few years is completely asinine, one of the stupid arguments the players make .
