It is often said that hockey players are the toughest athletes in any major professional sport.
The men who take the ice and risk life and limb every night in the NHL are the best at what they do, but some of these players are not as tough as they may appear. Sure, they cannot be generalized and being considered a "soft player" is not the worst thing in the world (See: Wayne Gretzky). But, it is an argument that hockey fans like to bring up.
Personally, I feel that all hockey players possess extra fortitude to do what they do so this not my personal opinions of the players, but more about what I have heard others say over the years.
So if you disagree or want to add to the discussion with a player you feel is not always willing to get in on the action let us know!
