Makes me feel for the boys, but I don't want to just have them fall off the map!

You read that out of context.....My point was regardless of how much they make or when they can retire the human body can only absorb so much abuse. These guys are supremely conditioned athletes but hockey is a brutal, punishing sport. I wasn't commenting on the teams play nor if they have it rougher than any other team. My only point was you cannot just dismiss what these guys put their bodies through because of their salary. Of course they know what they are signing up for and are well (I would argue too well) compensated for it but everybody seems to downplay the toll playing hockey at the NHL level takes on your body.
