Simple, you just need to be amongst the top 1000 hockey players in the world.

If you could replace a borderline NHL player with Joe Schmo off the street, he'd get paid $40K a year. Since you can't, they get paid a pretty good salary to be a spare part.

Now you could make a decent argument about spare part actors being replaced by Joe Schmos off the street, since that actually does happen from time to time.
