Dude? Have you ever seen an NHL game?

Yes, I have. I used to get all these free tickets to the Dallas Stars from our firm's ticket coordinator. Often, on a day the partners don't have big wig clients to take to the game, she'll email me at 3-4 PM asking me if I wanted the pair of tickets to that night's games - remember, our firm's Dallas location had over 2000 employees (100,000 worldwide).....this includes parking and a free gourmet buffet in the "club level." It was pretty awesome. I also used to attend the IHL Houston Aeros back in the 1990's. I am often very impressed by the quickness of the game.

Hnads down, hockey players are the greatest athletes in the world, followed by baseball players.

Yeah, this may be what the sport requires, but it doesn't mean they're the "best athletes"....maybe the most "complete, well-rounded athlete"?? Possibly. It depends on what one means by "best". No NHF hockey player could take down a large NFL linebacker in a fight. Very few hockey players could probably outrun the fastest NFL wide receivers or safeties. And no NHL player can out throw the fastest MLB pitchers. But can NHL players can many things better than the other athletes....certainly. Got to define "best athletes" first.
