Look at Scott Niedermayer for example. He had a Memorial Cup win, two Stanley Cups, all star games and first team all star awards before he won his Olympic Gold in 2002. What did he do after that? Won two more Cups, a Norris, Conn Smythe, WC Gold, and another Olympic Gold. I'm probably forgetting other awards and another thing, he got his payday too.

My point is these guys wouldn't be where they are without being extremely competitive. You hear players say after they win that first cup, they want to win it again just as much as they wanted the first one. Retirement comes around, but what do most of them do? Stay in hockey. It's just part of their love of the game.
