Hard work trumps talent 99 times out of 100.

Of course there are rare exceptions where an athlete has a terrible lifestyle, but still somehow performs amazingly. But this is extremely rare, and it doesn't seem like Nazem is one of these cases.
A pilot has to go to bed at the right hour, eat right, train properly, perform properly, etc.

So does a nurse, architect, chemical engineer, judge, artist, surgeon, circus performer, etc.

The list is infinite. People wearing their big boy/big girl pants. Professionalism is another way to describe it.

This thread is pointless.

If this is somehow about NHL players being the good guys and deserve big money then you've failed.
