OKC better be talking hard about eating/training habits.
it's just BOGGLES MY MIND that athletes who are making millions of dollars a year and who are 100% dependent on their bodies being in top physical shape for their massive paychecks, don't all pay the $30,000-40,000/year it would cost to have a private chef make most of their "at home" meals

the team provides meals at the rink and on the road, so that is easy enough to eat healthy, it is at home that must be a bigger challenge... players don't know how to cook and they are busy with other commitments, so I understand why they don't cook at home on their own a lot... getting pre-made meals for at home that only need to be heated up would cost no more than $40,000/year, and that is likely on the high side now that i think about it... you could probably get most of them handled for around $20,000 or so actually

its crazy that all the players don't do this.... it's even crazier that the oilers don't have an "on-staff" chef that takes care of all this for the players... maybe the oilers DO have such a person, but i've never heard about it
