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.
This is totally false. Pilots and doctors are not required to go to the gym 5-7 times a week. Nobody will ask them anything about their diet/sleep, unless it becomes clearly obvious. A doctor or a pilot can afford to gain 20 pounds, and still be able to perform just as good as he did before. Not so with athletes. Especially NHL players. There's absolutely no way that extra 20 pounds or 2 hours less of sleep won't affect your ice performance.
