That's pretty stupid if true.

I know I'm not a NHL player, but I play like it's game #7 of the SC finals in my pick-up league. I find it hard to believe that a pro athlete will give a "so-so" effort in a lesser league, just to avoid injuries.

These guys want to be the best night in/night out, that's just the mentality a pro athlete has to have cause there's so much competition that if you snooze too long, someone will bump you down a peg or two.

Just my opinion.
