Couple things. To many young fans out there, these guys are heroes. You're right that success in life takes hard work, and I wasn't trying to say otherwise, but please don't belittle what these athletes do to "so they hit the gym 6 times a week". That lifestyle takes so much more than just waking up and going to the gym. Furthermore, don't trivialize their commitment as a means to become 'super rich'. It's not a math equation. Showing up to a gym does not equal loads of money. They train hard so that they can improve their game and stay healthy to try and win a Stanley Cup. That reward is worth far more to many of these guys than a paycheck. Have you ever trained at an elite level for an extended period of time (months, years?). Don't knock it until you try it. They earn that money. Far from "whoopteedoo." In any case, thanks for the comment.
